in space whose position vector P satisﬁes P × a = 1? 4) Show that the line given in parametric form r(t) = 3 + 2t, 5t, 7 − 6t and the plane
2x − 2y − z = 6 are parallel, and ﬁnd the distance between them. 5) Estimate the value of ln(x2 + y ) at the point (0.4999, 0.7502). 6) Find all critical points of the function f (x, y ) := x4 + xy + y 4 and decide whether they
are local maxima, local minima, or neither. This is the end! If you ﬁnish during the last 5 minutes of the exam, please remain in your
seat until the end, and then pass your exams towards the aisles, and continue to wait
