Find the equation of the plane whose graph intersects the xz -plane in the line z = 3 x + 4 and intersects the yz -plane in the line z = y + 4. Solution The equation of the plane is z = mx + ny + c . At y = 0: z = 3 x + 0 y + 4 and, therefore, c = 4 and m = 3. At x = 0: z = 0 x + y + 4 which implies n = 1. Therefore, the equation of the plane is z = 3 x + y + 4 2. (5pts.) Find a function f ( x , y , z ) whose level surface f = - 2 is the graph of the function

Unformatted text preview: g ( x , y ) = xy 2 + e xy + 3. Let f ( x , y , z ) = g ( x , y )-z-2. Then the level surface f ( x , y , z ) =-2 is g ( x , y )-z-2 =-2 which implies z = g ( x , y ). This shows that the desired function is, f ( x , y , z ) = g ( x , y )-z-2 = xy 2 + e xy-z + 1 or, alternatively, f ( x , y , z ) = z-g ( x , y )-2 = z-xy 2-e xy-5...
