• D. 22 units per sec

B

## SOLUTION…

We can resolve this problem with two different methods, whichever way results in the same answer.

Method 1 = carrying out the multiplication and expanding to remove the bracket, and then differentiating the result using normal formula before substituting t = 5secs to get our answer.

Method 2 = using product rule to differentiate and then substituting t = 5secs.

Here, we are going to use method 2,

Product rule states thus:

### Now for the right answer to the above question:

1. Option A is incorrect.
