X And Y Pythagorean Theorem
639 wordsCalculus can be used to solve many problems. Probably the most important is solving real-life problems or situations. An example of this type of problem is a related rates problem. A related rates problem is a problem which involves at least two changing quantities and asks you to figure out the rate at which one is changing given sufficient information on all of the others. There are several key steps in setting up and solving related rates problems. Some important and helpful things to do are ...
