Objectives 1 Find the equation of a plane tangent to the graph of f ( x , y ). 2 Compute the linearization of a function f ( x , y ). 3 Calculate differentials of z = f ( x , y ). 4 Apply the concepts of linearization and differentials to estimation problems. Lecture 7: Tangent Planes and Linear Approximations
Finding the tangent plane. In two dimensions, we constructed lines tangent to the graph of a function f ( x ) at a point x 0 . Lecture 7: Tangent Planes and Linear Approximations

Finding the tangent plane. In two dimensions, we constructed lines tangent to the graph of a function f ( x ) at a point x 0 . y - f ( x o ) = f 0 ( x 0 )( x - x 0 ) Lecture 7: Tangent Planes and Linear Approximations
Finding the tangent plane. In two dimensions, we constructed lines tangent to the graph of a function f ( x ) at a point x 0 . y - f ( x o ) = f 0 ( x 0 )( x - x 0 ) In three dimensions, the graph of f ( x , y ) is a surface, and our goal is to find the plane that is tangent to the surface at a point ( x 0 , y 0 ).

### 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.
