**Reiny**, Thursday, March 22, 2012 at 10:02amlet the angle you mentioned be Ų

Let the foot of the ladder be x ft from the wall, and the height of the ladder be y ft

cosŲ = y/10

y = 10cosŲ

dy/dt = -10sinŲ dŲ/dt

when x = 6

x^2+y^2=100

y = 8 , and sinŲ = 8/10

Also we know dy/dt = -3 m/s

-3 = -10(8/10)(dŲ/dt)

dŲ/dt = 3/8 radians/s
