14.4.11 Explain why f (x, y) = 1 + x ln(xy − 5) is differentiable at (2, 3). Then find the
linearization L(x, y) of the function at that point.

At (2, 3), note that the denominator xy − 5 of fractional parts is nonzero. So both
fx and fy are continuous because they are sums and compositions of continuous
functions. Therefore f (x, y) is differentiable at (2, 3).
f (2, 3) = 1 + 3 ln(2 &middot; 3 − 5) = 1 + 3 ln 1 = 1

14.4.33 The length and width of a rectangle are measured ad 30 cm and 24 cm, respectively, with an error in measurement of at most 0.1 cm in each. Use differentials
to estimate the maximum error in the calculated area of the rectangle.
Length = l, width = w ⇒ area = A = wl
dA = w dl + l dw
l = 30, w = 24, |dl| ≤ 0.1, |dw| ≤ 0.1
|dA| = |w dl + l dw| ≤ w|dl| + l|dw| ≤ 30 &middot; 0.1 + 24 &middot; 0.1 = 5.4
