**Reiny**, Thursday, June 13, 2013 at 11:48pmlet the distance of the west-bound car from the intersection be x

let the distance of the north-bound car from the intersection be y

and let the distance between them be d

d^2 = x^2 + y^2

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

when x=22, y=27 , dx/dt = 15 ft/sec , dy/dt = 5 ft/sec

and d^2 = 22^2 + 27^2 = 1213

d = √1213

√1213 dd/dt = 22(15) + 27(5) = 465

dd/dt = 465/√1213 = appr 13.4 ft/s
