(14 points) Let f ( x,y ) = 1 2 x 2 + 3 2 y 2- xy 3 . (a) Find all the critical points of f . For each, specify if it is a local maximum, a local minimum, or a saddle point, and briefly show how you know. (b) Write the quadratic approximation (that is, the degree-2 Taylor polynomial) for f at the point ( x,y ) = (1 , 1). Math 51, Spring 2007 Final Exam June 8, 2007 Page 3 of 17 2. (12 points) Consider the function f ( x,y ) = p 50- x 2- y 2 . (a) Find an equation that defines the level set of f through the point ( x,y ) = (3 , 4). Sketch and label the curve and point on the axes below. (Be sure to include the scales on your axes.) (b) Calculate f , the gradient of f , at the point ( x,y ) = (3 , 4) and indicate it on your diagram above. (c) Calculate the directional derivative of f at the point (3 , 4) in the direction of the vector (2 ,- 1). Math 51, Spring 2007 Final Exam June 8, 2007 Page 4 of 17 3. (8 points) Suppose S is the surface in R 3 given by the equation xy + yz + xz = 1 . (a) Find the equation of the tangent plane to S at the point ( x,y,z ) = (- 1 , 2 , 3)....
