I have to find an equation for a plane normal to
when
Is the equation in the form:
would i take the derivative of x, y, and z?
Would this require the product rule for x, and y individually? not z of course!
here is my attempt at just the product rule of x alone:
would it then be?
I guess my 2 questions are. is my generic form correct of the equation for a plane normal to the vector correct above?
and when i take the derivative do i use the product rule and did i do it correctly?
I am not sure how to get <a,b,c> and the point <x,y,z> either.
I am completely lost
Thank you
Not quite. The derivative of is . You forgot the multiplying.
