A particle is travelling along the postivie x axis at a constant speed of 5 units per second.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

a) Where is the point when its distance from the point (0, 1) is increasing at a rate of 4 units per second?

b) Where is the point when its distance from the point (0, 1) is increasing at a rate of 6 units per second?

I am completely stuck, I could use some hints, thanks!
