First observe that using implicit dif= ∇z · ￿dx, dy ￿ = as before to calcu- These two approaches say exactly the same thing, but they use slight different notation. Both notations are widely used so it’s important to get used to translating between the two. (d) Find the directional derivative of z = f (x, y ) at P (2, 1, −1) in the direction ￿...
