## softball problem

ok so we have a softball diamond that is a square whose sides are 60 ft long. suppose that a player running from first to second base has a speed of 25 ft/s at the instant when she is 10ft. from second base. at what rate is the players distance from home plate changing at that instant? ok im clueless on this one...would i use the area of the square and take the derivative? thanks in advance...
