Answer to Question #24139 in Calculus for Rockney Shepheard

Question #24139
I want to find the rate of change of the area of any rectangle with respect to it's hypotenuse. I know how to do derivatives but I don't have any idea what equation to apply it to. Would it be the equation of the area or the hypotenuse I would take a derivative of? Is there a rule in calculus that would make it clear which one to use given (dA/dH), such as..."always take the deriviative of the one on top (dA/dH)? Thanks!

But according to KhanAcademy the answer should be
1/2(x^2-a^2)^-1/2 x ((2x-2a)*da/dx)

What might I be missing?
