A hot-air balloon is 150 feet above the ground when a motorcycle passes directly beneath it (traveling in a straight line on a horizontal road). The motorcycle is traveling at 40 mph. If the balloon is rising vertically at a rate of 10 ft/sec, what is the rate of change of the distance between the balloon and the motorcycle ten seconds later?
