1. Hey, you try first. You are supposed to know how to take the derivative of a polynomial.
if y = a x^n
then dy/dx = n a x^(n-1)

and the derivative of a constant is therefore 0
because if
y = a x^0
dy/dx = a * 0 * x^-1 = 0
so if
v = -t^2+15
then
a = dv/dt = -2 t + 0
and at t = 5
a = -2(5) = -10
if dv/dt is negative and v is positive, it is slowing.
