A ladder leans against a vertical wall and the top of the ladder is sliding down the wall at a
constant rate of 1/2 ft/sec. At the moment when the top of the ladder is 16 feet above the
ground, the bottom of the ladder is sliding away from the wall (horizontally) at the rate of
2/3 ft/sec. At what rate will the bottom of the ladder be sliding away from the wall when the
top of the ladder is 12 feet above the ground?
