You can work with others and use references. You should write out your own final solutions. Show your work.
1. a) Use the chain rule to find
z
for z = (e xy ) tan y, x = s+4 t, y = t / s.
t
b) Use partial derivatives to find dy / dx for y6 + x3 y2 = 3 + x
2. (a) For f(x,y) = y e
(b). For f f(x,y) = y e

find the gradient of f(x,y) at the point (1, -2).
find the directional derivative of f(x,y) at the point (1, -2) in the direction v = &lt;8, -6&gt;.
3. Provide two geometric interpretations of the gradient – one interpretation should relate to level curves of a function
and another should relate to the rate of increase of the function.
4. Find the following partial derivatives

points for f(x,y) = x y ( 4 – x – y ).
6. Find the absolute max and min of f(x,y) = 4 + xy – x – 2y over the closed triangle with vertices (1,0), (5,0) and (1,4).
