    Didn't they also give you the water level in the tank? I think you need that as well.

    It isn't labelled in a diagram or anything? Their mistake, I think. Then suppose the water level of the tank is L above the vertex (you can plug in the number for L later). Can you express the rate in terms of L?

    v=1/3 pi r^2h

    substitute r= 3h/2

    V= (3pi h^3)/4

    d/dt ( V = (3pi h^3) / 4 )

    R= (27pi/8)h^2 + 0.5

    is this right?
