Ans: Equation is given by ( z z ) = f x (2 , 1)( x x ) + f y (2 , 1)( y y ). We have f x = 2 x + 2 y and f y = 2 x 2 y which gives us f x (2 , 1) = 6 and f y (2 , 1) = 2. Thus, our equation becomes ( z 7) = 6( x 2) + 2( y 1) which simplifies to z = 6 x + 2 y 7 . The graph of f ( x,y ) = x 2 + 2 xy y 2 and the vertical plane y = 1 intersect in a curve. Find a parametric equation for the tangent line to this curve of intersection at the point (2 , 1 , 7) . Ans: We have a point on the line; namely (2 , 1 , 7). We only have to find a parallel vector, V . First, note that V lies in the plane y = 1 and so its ycomponent will be zero (it is perpendicular to the yaxis). So we can write V = h a, ,b i . Now, the ratio b/a is just the slope of the tangent vector to the curve of intersection in the y = 1 plane. This is just= 1 plane....
