Use the table for wave heights in Problem 4 of 15.3 of Stewarts Multivariable Calculus to estimate the value of D u f (30 , 20) , where u = ( i + j ) / 2 . 15.6b. ind the directional derivative of f ( x, y, z ) = x 2 + 3 y 2- 2 z 2 at the point (3 , 5 , 4) in the direction of the origin. 15.6c. Show that a differentiable function f decreases fastest at a point P in the direction opposite the gradient vector at P . In which direction is the function f ( x, y, z ) = x 2 + 3 y 2- 2 z 2 decreasing the fastest at the point (3 , 5 , 4) ? 15.6d.
