Sample Second Midterm Answer all seven questions. You must show your working to obtain full credit. Points may be deducted if you do not justify your Fnal answer. 1. Let f ( x, y )=2 x 2 + x 3 y + x 2 y 4 8 y . (i) ±ind all the second partial derivatives of f . (ii) The function f has a critical point at ( 2 , 1). [You need NOT prove this.] Determine whether the critical point is a local maximum or a local minimum or a saddle. 2. ±or the function z = xy + x 2 /y suppose that x is measured as 5 with a possible error of ± 0 . 02 and y is measured as 2 with a possible error of ± 0 . 04. Use di²erentials to estimate the maximum possible error in the value of z . 3. Suppose that z = xy + xw + yw where x = e st , y = s 2 , and w = s + t . Use the chain rule to evaluate ∂z ∂s and ∂z ∂t when s = 1 and t =2 . 4. ±or the function f ( x, y, z )= x 2 yz 3 + xz Fnd (i) the gradient of f ;

Use the method of Lagrange multipliers to Fnd the maximum and minimum values of f ( x, y, z ) = 2 x + 3 y z on the ellipsoid 4 x 2 + y 2 + 2 z 2 = 42. ind also the points where the maximum and minimum values are obtained. 6. ind the volume of the solid under the surface z = 6 + x + y 2 and above the region bounded by y = x and x = 2 y 2 . 7. Use polar coordinates to evaluate D y dA where D is the region in the Frst quadrant inside the circle x 2 + y 2 = 4 and outside the circle x 2 + y 2 = 2 x ....
