S E C T I O N 15.4 Differentiability, Linear Approximation, and Tangent Planes (ET Section 14.4) 673 We now divide by I = x a y b to obtain I I ax a 1 y b x I + bx a y b 1 y I = ax a 1 y b x x a y b + bx a y b 1 y x a y b = a x x + b y y That is, I I a x x + b y y . 37. The monthly payment for a home loan is given by a function f ( P , r , N ) , where P is the principal (the initial size of the loan), r the interest rate, and N the length of the loan in months. Interest rates are expressed as a decimal: A 6% interest rate is denoted by r = 0 . 06. If P = \$100 , 000, r = 0 . 06, and N = 240 (a 20-year loan), then the monthly payment is f ( 100 , 000 , 0 . 06 , 240 ) = 716 . 43. Furthermore, with these values, we have f P = 0 . 0071 , f r = 5 , 769 , f N = − 1 . 5467 Estimate: (a) The change in monthly payment per \$1,000 increase in loan principal. (b) The change in monthly payment if the interest rate increases to r = 6 . 5% and r = 7%. (c) The change in monthly payment if the length of the loan increases to 24 years. SOLUTION (a) The linear approximation to f ( P , r , N ) is f f P P + f r r + f N N We are given that f P = 0 . 0071, f r = 5769, f N = − 1 . 5467, and P = 1000. Assuming that r = 0 and N = 0, we get f 0 . 0071 ·

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
