## A man walks along a straight path at a speed of 4 m / s. A

searchlight is located on the ground 20 m from the path
and is kept focused on the man. At what rate is the
searchlight rotating when the man is 15m from the point
closest to the search-light?

## 10. An offshore oil well is located in the ocean at a point

W, which is 5 miles from the closest shorepoint A on a
straight shoreline. The oil is to be piped to a
shorepoint B that is 8 miles from A by piping it on a
straight line underwater from W to some shorepoint P
between A and B and then on to B via a pipe along the
shoreline. If the cost of laying pipe is \$100,000 per
mile under water and \$75,000 per mile over land, where
should the point P be located to minimize the cost of
laying the pipe?
