Hi Again,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am doing a question on related rates that I have become stuck on.

The height (h) of an equilateral triangle is increasing at a rate of 3cm/min. How fast is the area changing when h is 5cm?

I know that the area of a triangle is bh/2, but after that I am stuck I tried deriving it using the chain rule so that I could substitute h and the rate of h, but I don't think that i was doing it the right way. If anyone could direct me here I would really appreciate the help.
