We're trying to figure out how fast the water level is rising, so we know that B is three H because three over one is B over H. Therefore we know V is be times Age, so three h times age. Remember, be a screech. Times 10 divide by two Go for V is 15 h squared 30 over 2 15 Therefore, Devi over DT is 30 h times d h over DT, which means that 12 is 30 times 0.5 times d h over DT, which means that the age over D she is for over 50.8 feet per minute.
