Math 237 - Sample Midterm 2 1. Short Answer Problems a) Let f : R 2 R . State the precise definition of lim ( x,y ) ( a,b ) f ( x, y ) = L . b) Let f : R 2 R . If f x and f y are both continuous at ( a, b ), then what are two things you can say about f at ( a, b )? c) Let f ( x, y ) = x 2 + xy + y 3 . What is the greatest rate of change of f at ( - 1 , 1)? d) If f : R 2 R has continuous second partial derivatives and Hf ( x, y ) = ± 0 0 0 0 ² for all points ( x, y ) in a neighborhood of ( a, b ) then what can you conclude about the accuracy of L ( a,b ) ( x, y )? Justify your answer. 2. Let f ( x, y ) = p y 2 - x 2 . a) Sketch the domain and state the range of f ? b) Sketch the level curves and cross sections of z = f ( x, y ). 3. Prove that if f : R 2 R is differentiable at ( a, b ) then f is continuous at ( a, b ). 4. Let g : R 2 R and let f ( x, y ) = g ( u, v ) where u = u ( x, y ) = xe xy and v = v ( x, y ) = x + y 2 . Find 2 f ∂x∂y . What assumptions do you need to make about g so that you can apply the chain rule? 5. Use the second degree Taylor polynomial to approximate ( - 0 . 99) 3 (1 . 02) 2 . 6.
