A rectangular prism has its length increasing by 12 cm/min, its width increasing by 4 cm/min and its height increasing by 2 cm/min. How fast is it's volume changing when the dimensions are 200 cm in length, 50 cm in width and 30 cm in height?

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solutionI wasnt positive on how to do this but the way i attempted it was Since the V=LxWxH i tryed to put them all into one variable x, therefore 200(0.25x)(0.15x)=V in this case x=200 and then i took the derivative with respect to time to find the Rate of the volume is this the right approach?
