Ecologists estimate that, when the population of a certain city is x thousand persons, the average level L of carbon monoxide in the air above the city will be L ppm (parts per million), where L = 10 + .4x + .0001x2. The population of the city is estimated to be x = 752 + 23t + .5t2 thousand persons t years from the present.
(a) Find the rate of change of carbon monoxide with respect to the population of the city.
