Define your variables and "create" your own formula

let the square base have sides x by x

let the height be h

Volume = x^2 h ----- (from V = length x width x height)

using the product rule:

d(Volume)/dt = x^2 dh/dt + h(2x) dx/dt

we are given all those values

dV/dt = 40^2 (2) + 100(80)(4)

= ....
