The functions that we have studied this year have all been functions of one independent variable: eg: ( 29 ( 29 ( 29 2 sin f x x f x x = = In real life, functions often have more than one independent variable: eg: 1 Area of a triangle: 2 A bh = ( 29 1 , 2 f b h bh = ( 29 2 2 2 , , f x y z x y z = + + 2 2 2 w x y z = + +
Functions with two independent variables can be represented graphically. This is not easy to do by hand, and our calculators do not do a great job either. ( 29 2 2 , 100 z f x y x y = = - -
