So it would be

Using the formula:

area = (1/2) ab sinŲ , where a and b are the sides and Ų is the contained angle

A = (1/2)(8*24)sinŲ

A = 96 sinŲ

dA/dt = 96cosŲ dŲ/dt

given: dŲ/dt = .05

dA /dt = 96(cos(135)(.05) = -3.40

I keep getting it wrong?

I get the same result

Make a sketch with the arms at 135° ........ (90+45)

if you increase the angle , you will see that the area is actually getting smaller, (the lines eventually will become a straight line, at which point the area is zero)

at Ų = 134.99° , A = 67.894097

at Ų = 135.01° , A = 67.87040..

notice that the area has decreased slightly for that small increase in the angle
