A plane flying horizontally at an altitude of 1 mi and a speed of 500 mi/h passes directly over a radar station.  Find the rate at which the distance from the plane to the station is increasing when it is 2 mi away from the station.

1 mi = 500

2 mi = 500 times 2

2 mi = 1000


I hope this helps!!
