Here is a link to the question:Calculus Parallel Resistors Question Help?

Need some detailed help with the following problem please!

An electrical circuit consists of two parallel resistors, with resistances R1 and R2 respectively. The total resistance R of the circuit (measured in Ohms) is specified by (1/R = (1/R1) + (1/R2).

The resistors are heating up, so their resistances are increasing over time. Suppose that R1 is increasing at a rate of .3 Ohms/s and R2 is increasing at a rate of .2 ohms/s.

When R1 = 80 Ohms and R2 = 100 Ohms, how fast is the total resistance increasing?
