Motion Problems

posted by .

A satellite which travels around the earth has a power supply that provides power according to the formula:

P =(17200)/(t + 100)

where t is the number of days the satellite is aloft. Find the rate at which power is decreasing after 380 days.

rate in watts/day (enter as a positive number) =
