    I am slightly unsure what to do with (c), do we use the same limits as from part (b)?

    for (b) just evaluate the gradient at that point

    for (c) you take the directional derivative which is the gradient dot the directional vector

    I don't see how you can do (c) unless they tell you a point to take the derivative at.

    That's why I was thinking possibly we use the same point as in b maybe?
