    Can you show what you've attempted, if anything?

    To start off, you should write down the expression for the area of the circle. Differentiating that expression will give you the rate of change of the area with respect to the radius.

    i know you have to use the chain rule, but honestly i just don't understand how to

    i think it's dr/dt = dt/dr*da/dr ??

    im sorry idk ;(

    Okay, so chain rule is \frac{\mathrm{d} A}{\mathrm{d} t}=\frac{dA}{dr}\cdot \frac{dr}{dt}. We know the rate of the increase in the radius (0.2cm/s), which is dr/dt. dA/dt is also known (20cm^2/s).



    And you have an expression for dA/dr (differentiate A = πr^2). You can then solve for r.
