<p>I need help understanding related rates! Anyone that knows how to do them, please email me. my email is in my profile. It would help if you had the calculus book that is HUGE and blue called "Calculus" by Rolan E. Larson and Robert P. Hostetler it is the 6th edition book. Thanks so much!</p>

<p>Whats up. I took calculus last year so i might have forgotten some of it, but related rates seemed easy to me. And, of course, i don't have the textbook anymore. I'm too lazy to e-mail. Do you have any specific problems you need help with? Just post them here. Or if you need any general guidelines, i can help you out.</p>

<p>Yeah post your questions here and I'll try to help too. I learned related rates a few weeks ago.</p>

<p>ive got that book....post some q's for me and ill see what i can do for ya</p>

<p>pgs. 146-149, numbers 26, 35, 42, and 43. thanks so much. could you email me?</p>

<p>odd answers in back, work backwards, helps me sometimes</p>

<p>related rates arent that bad. write the formula for the equation and find the derivative. put ds/dt, dr/dt, da/dt or whatever after each variable, plug in the known rate of change to find the other one...</p>

<p>Related rates suck - the easy, straightforward problems are okay, but when you get these silly word problems with trig and angles or even some others ... eh, it reminds me of word problems back in algebra 1, the problems are easy but the application makes it difficult.</p>

<p>I can do straight problems all day long, but those dang word problems seem to screw me. I had Calc about 6 years ago (in 8th grade) so I need to re-read some of this stuff.</p>
