## Homework Statement

**The measure of one of the acute angles of a right triangle is decreasing at the rate 1/36 pi rad/sec. If the length of the hypotenuse is constant at 40cm, find how fast the area is changing when the measure of the acute angle is 1/6 pi.**

## Homework Equations

## The Attempt at a Solution

**I used the formula for the area of a triangle which is 1/2 base times the height, using trigonometry function, I substitute the value of base with 40costeta and the height is 40sinteta. How will I differentiated A = 40costeta*40sinteta? Will I use the product rule to differentiate? where will I include or put the rate given?**
