Differentiate with respect to time

A turkey can run faster than it can fly backwards. Thus, it's position equation is represented by 2x+y=3. Differentiate with respect to time and find how fast it's changing when it's x is increasing at 1 meter per second.

If you want the rate of change in y with respect to time,
 
y = -2x + 3
 
dy/dt = - 2 dx/dt
 
When dx/dt = 1 m/s,
 
dy/dt = - 2(1 m/s) = - 2 m/s
