How do I solve this? (question too long)

The top of a 15-foot-long ladder rests against a vertical wall with the bottom of the ladder on level ground, as shown above (it's just a ladder leaning against a wall). The ladder is sliding down the wall at a constant rate of 2 feet per second. At what rate, in radians per second, is the acute angle between the bottom of the ladder and the ground changing at the instant the bottom of the ladder is 9 feet from the base of the wall? (The last part confused me...)
