a) A young man measuring 1.89 m. walks at a velocity of 1m/s towards a lamppost which its light is at 4m from the ground. At what velocity does the young man's shadow decrease when he's 10 m away from the lamppost?

b) A young girl, standing at the edge of a dock, pulls a boat towards herself with a cable attached to the front of a boat at 0.3m from sea level. If the girl pulls the cable at a velocity of 1.6 m/s, her hands being at 2.5m from sea level, at what velocity does the boat approach the dock when it's 3m away?
