Can't seem to set this problem up(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Suppose a tree grows at a yearly rate equal to 1/10 of its height. If the tree is 10 ft tall now, how tall will it be in 5 years?

dy/dx=x/10

y=(x^2)/20+c

Im almost guessing this is right so far, if so will the 10ft be my constant?
