viewing angle of the movie screen is as large as possible?
3) (Section 3.7) A rectangular piece of paper is 12 inches high and six inches wide. The
lower right-hand corner is folded over so as to reach the leftmost edge of the paper.

lines tangent to the graph at (x, y) have slope -1
6)
(Section 3.8) A 200 foot tree is falling in the forest; the sun is directly overhead. At the
o
moment when the tree makes an angle of 30 with the horizontal, its shadow is
lengthening at the rate of 50 feet/sec. How fast is the angle changing at that moment ?
7) (Section 3.8) A trough is 10m long and its ends have the shape of equilateral triangles
(i.e. all three sides have equal length) that are 2m across, as shown in the diagram
below. If the trough is being filled with water at the rate of 12m3 / min , how fast is the
water level rising when the water is 60cm deep?

8) (Section 3.8) Two parallel sides of a rectangle are being lengthened at the rate of 2in / sec
while the other two sides are shortened in such a way that the figure remains a
rectangle with constant area A of 50 square inches. What is the rate of change of the
perimeter P when the length of an increasing side is 5in?
