(b) Compute the value of the directional derivative D u f ( 1,2) when u is the unit vector in the plane that is in the direction of the gradient of f at (-1,2). When u is the unit vector in the plane that is in the direction of the gradient of f at (-1,2), we have D u f ( 1,2) f( 1,2) 5 since . f( x , y ) < 2 x ,1> when f( x , y ) y x 2 Note: To compute the directional derivative in most other directions, you might want to have the unit vector in hand. Here, we don’t need it thanks to an earlier analysis.

(a) Use an appropriate form of chain rule to find z / v when z = sin( x )sin( y ) when x = u + v and y = u 2 - v 2 . z v z x x v z y y v cos( x )sin( y )(1) sin( x )cos( y )( 2 v ) cos( u v )sin( u 2 v 2 ) sin( u v )cos( u 2 v 2 )(2 v ). (b) Assume that F ( x , y , z ) = 0 defines z implicitly as a function of x and y . Show that if F / z 0, then z x F / x F / z . Using classical curly d notation, since x and y are independent variables and z is a function of x and y , we have F ( x , y , z ) x 0 F x x x F y y x F z z x 0 F x F z z x 0 z x F / x F / z . ______________________________________________________________________ 8. (10 pts.). (a) Use limit laws and continuity properties to evaluate the following limit. lim ( x , y ) ( 1/4, π ) ( xy 2 sec 2 ( xy )) ( 1 4 )( π ) 2 sec 2 ( π 4 ) π 2 2 (b) Evaluate the limit, if it exists, by converting to polar coordinates.
