The rate at which ice is melting in a pond is given by dV/dt= √(1+2t), where V is the volume of ice in cubic feet, and t is the time in minutes. What amount of ice has melted in the first 5 minutes? 
Could someone please tell me how to do this problem? I tried doing the derivative and then plugging in 5 but I did not get the right answer.
