Suppose the graph of F represents a shiny smooth hill. 1. What are the partial derivatives of F with respect to x and y . 2. What is the gradient? Suppose you are standing over the point x = 1 , y = 2 on the hill. 3. If you drop a marble, in which direction will it start to roll? You only need to specify the direction in the x, y plane which it will take. 4. What is the slope of the hill in the direction of the vector (2 , 6)? 5.
