1. [17%] For f (x, y, z) = x3 + sin(xyz)
(b) find the directional derivative at the point (1, π2 , 1) in the direction
of the vector h2, 1, 2i;
(c) find the maximum rate of change of f at the point (1, π2 , 1).
2. [13%] Find the equation of the plane which is tangent to the surface
zexyz = 1
at the point (5, 0, 1).
3. [15%] Find all critical points of
f (x, y) = x3 + y 3 − 3xy
and classify them as local maxima, local minima, or saddle points.
4. [15%] Let
f (x, y) = xy − 2x + 5.
Find the absolute maximum and minimum values of f on the set
D which is the closed triangular region with vertices A(0,0), B(1,1),
C(0,1).
