3.5. SURFACES AND THEIR TANGENT PLANES 291 at the point (1 , 1 , 2), these values are ∂f ∂x (1 , 1 , 2) = 8 ∂f ∂y (1 , 1 , 2) = 2 ∂f ∂z (1 , 1 , 2) = 4 so we see from the Implicit Function Theorem that we can solve for any one of the variables in terms of the other two. For example, near this point we can write z = φ ( x,y ) where 4 x 2
