    find ∂w/∂r......

    find ∂w/∂r and ∂w/∂s where r =1 and s = -1 if w=(x + y + z)^2
    where x = r - s
    y = cos (r + s)
    z = sin (r + s)

    just sub in the expressions for x,y,z.
    w = [(r-s) + cos(r+s) + sin(r+s)]
    if you take ∂w/∂r, then you get ∂w/∂r = 2[1 - sin(r+s) + cos(r+s)][(r-s) + cos(r+s) + sin(r+s)]
    then just sub in values of r & s.
    i'm sure you can do it for ∂w/∂s as well.
