**Steve**, Wednesday, February 13, 2013 at 1:04pmWe have a nice 3-4-5 triangle at the moment in question, so AB = 100

If we let x and y be the distances of the two cars (B and A) then the distance d=AB is

d^2 = x^2 + y^2

2d dd/dt = 2x dx/dt + 2y dy/dt

so, when x=80 and y=60, d=100, and we have

100 dd/dt = 80(30) + 60(-45)

dd/dt = -3
