Can someone help me with a related rates problem please?

An oil slick on a lake is surrounded by a floating circular containment boom. As the boom is pulled in, the circular containment area shrinks. If the radius of the area decreases at a constant rate of 5 m/min, at what rate is the containment area shrinking when the containment area has a diameter of 60 m? please give exact answer
