Three things:

1. Latex is currently down.

2. Use instead of

3. Your derivatives are a bit off.

Given z = sin(x + sin(t))

(del z)/(del x) = cos(x + sin(t)) *1

not cos(x + sin(1)).

This is the only error I saw, though you kept doing it consistently. So your other partials are wrong as well.

Hi

There then the partials must be

I have checked them myself, but do they look right to you now?

Sincerley Fred

p.s. my original reasoning regarding the chain rule, was that correct. I hope.? - Sep 24th 2006, 01:56 PMtopsquark
