Solution: The domain of f is 4 + x 2- y 2 x 2- y 2 - 4. The range is z 0. ii) Sketch level curves and cross sections. Solution: Level Curves: k = radicalbig 4 + x 2- y 2 x 2- y 2 = k 2- 4, k Cross sections: z = radicalbig 4 + c 2- y 2 z 2 + y 2 = 4 + c 2 , z z = 4 + x 2- d 2 z 2- x 2 = 4- d 2 , z 2. Find the limit, if it exists, or show that the limit does not exist. a) lim ( x,y ) (0 , 0) x 4 +2 y 4 x 4 + y 4 Solution: Approaching the limit along lines y = mx we get lim ( x,y ) (0 , 0) x 4 + 2 m 4 x 4 x 4 + m 4 x 4 = lim x 1 + 2 m 4 1 + m 4 = 1 + 2 m 4 1 + m 4 . Hence, since we get a different limit for each value of m the limit does not exist. 1 2 b) lim ( x,y ) (0 , 0) ( x- y ) 2 | x | + | y | Solution: Approaching the limit along lines y = mx we get lim ( x,y, ) (0 , 0) ( x- mx ) 2 | x | + | mx | = lim...
