Notice the right triangle.

Let Yuliana's distance from ____________ base.

Find the remaining two sides of the triangle, in terms of

Things that change (or describe change) should be 'plugged in' to the derivative equation, not the original equation . This includes Yuliana's running rate and her position from 1st base at the moment in question.

Is Yuliana's rate positive or negative?

The distance between Yuliana and Eddie is changing at a rate of
