**1. THe base of an isosceles triangle is 20 cm and the altitude is increasing at the rate of 1 cm/min. At whate rate is the base angle increasing when the area is 100 cm^2? answer 0.05 rad/s**

**2. What I did:**

-Took the derivative of tan and assumed that each base side of the trianlge was 10 cm

-Found height by using area which also came up to be ten! h = 100/x (x is each base side)

-Sub values for the derivative equation and got 0.14 as an answer =(
