(4 points) Find the partial derivatives f x ( x, y ) and f y ( x, y ). Solution: f x ( x, y ) = e x 2 + y 2 + 2 x 2 e x 2 + y 2 and f y ( x, y ) = 2 xye x 2 + y 2 . b. (4 points) Find the directional derivative of f in the direction of the vector i + 2 j at the point (1 , 0). Solution: The unit vector u in the direction of i + 2 j is 1 5 i + 2 5 j . So D u f (1 , 0) = f (1 , 0) u = parenleftbigg 3 e i + 0 j parenrightbigg parenleftbigg 1 5 i +...
