1). DRAW A PICTURE! – Determine what rates are being compared.
PROCEDURE: 1). DRAW A PICTURE! – Determine what rates are being compared.  2). Assign variables to all given and unknown quantities and rates.  3). Write an equation involving the variables whose rates are given or are to be found   ·       Equation of a graph? ·       Formula from Geometry?   The equation must involve only the variables from step 2. – ((You may have to solve a secondary equation to eliminate a variable.))  4). Use Implicit Differentiation (with respect to the parameter t).  5). AFTER DIFFERENTIATION, substitute in all known values   (( You may have to solve a secondary equation to find the value of a variable.)) May plug in a constant as long as it is unchanging
