Unformatted text preview: M 427L Each question is worth 10 points, the total is 120 No Graphing Calculators. Put your answers to all the questions on the scan-tron sheet. Be sure to fill out the top of the scan-tron sheet. I suggest you look at all of the possible answers before making your choice. You may keep your exam, you need only turn in the scan-tron sheet. For problems 1–12 (i.e. the entire exam) let f ( x,y ) : R 2 → R be the function f ( x,y ) = x 2 + 4 xy + y 2 . 1.
