moseley (cmm3869) – HW14 – Gilbert – (56380) 1 This print-out should have 9 questions. Multiple-choice questions may continue on the next column or page – fnd all choices beFore answering. 001 10.0 points In the contour map below identiFy the points P, Q , and R as local minima, local maxima, or neither. 3 2 1 0 -1 -2 0 -3 -2 -1 0 1 2 Q P R A. local maximum at Q , B. local minimum at P , C. local minimum at R . 1. C only 2. A and C only 3. A and B only 4. all oF them 5. A only 6. B and C only 7. B only correct 8. none oF them Explanation: A. ±ALSE: the point Q lies on the 0- contour and this contour divides the region near Q into two regions. In one region the contours have values increasing to 0, while in the other the contours have values decreasing to 0. So the surFace does not have a local minimum at Q . B. TRUE: the contours near P are closed curves enclosing P and the contours decrease in value as we approch P . So the surFace has a local minimum at P . C. ±ALSE: the contours near R are closed curves enclosing R and the contours increase in value as we approch R . So the surFace has a local maximum at R , not a local minimum. keywords: contour map, local extrema, True/±alse, 002 10.0 points Locate and classiFy all the local extrema oF f ( x, y ) = x 3 y 3 + 3 xy 1 . 1. local min at (0 , 0), saddle point at (1 , 1) 2. local max at (1 , 1), local min at (0 , 0) 3. local min at (1 , 1), saddle point at (0 , 0) correct 4. local max at (1 , 1), saddle point at (0 , 0) 5. local max at (0 , 0), saddle point at (1 , 1) Explanation: Since f has derivatives everywhere, the crit- ical points occur at the solutions oF f ( x, y ) = f x i + f y j = 0 .
