(hint: rearrange the equation to get x alone on the left-hand side of the equation, then take the derivative) x = 5/6 -y/6 -(4p 2 )/6 x/ y = -1/6 (note: in this partial derivative, treat "p" as a constant) 5) Given 4 = -2U +7z 4q - 1/(2p) , find U/ p. (hint: rearrange the equation for U, then take the derivative) U = -4/2 +(7z
