A car leaves an intersection traveling west. Its position 5 sec later is 22 ft from the intersection. At the same time, another car leaves the same intersection heading north so that its position 5 sec later is 27 ft from the intersection. If the speed of the cars at that instant of time is 15 ft/sec and 5 ft/sec, respectively, find the rate at which the distance between the two cars is changing. (Round your answer to one decimal place.)
