I used the limit definition of the partial derivative ∂f/∂x(a,b)=limh→0f(a+h,b)−f(a,b)/h. but either x or y is 0 , and the whole equation equates to 0 at the end, resulting in the same result for either partial derivative. Can anyone help me? Thanks

Welcome to MHF, mackygood! As part of the process to find your partial derivative, you'll need to evaluate: The first term in the nominator of this limit will not be zero...
