    A.) let A be the area of a circle of radius r that is changing w/ respect to time. if dr/dt is a constant, is dA/dt a constant, explain.

    b.) let V be the volume of a sphere of radius r that is changing w/ respect to time. If dr/dt is constant, is dV/dt constant, explain.

    c.) All edges of a cube are expanding at a rate of 3 centimeters per second. How fast is the volume changing when each edge is a.) 1 centimeter b.) 10 centimeters?

    (a) A(t) = pi*r(t)^2
    Now, dA(t)/dt = 2*pi*r(t)*dr/dt
    Because dr/dt is constant, dA/dt is ...
