1.)f(x,y) = arctan(y/x) fx(2,3)

how would I do this?

2.) f(x,y) = ln(x+ sqrt(x^2+y^2) ) fx(3,4)

1/(+ sqrt(x^2+y^2) * 1+ 1/2(x^2 + y^2) * 2x

is that correct for #2?

Thanks

i just plug in x and y into that equation right?

Find all the second partial derivatives of

v = xy/(x-y)

could you quickly show me the steps to see if I did it correctly?

- Nov 13th 2008, 08:53 AMkhuezyi got the fxx and fyy
but I don't get how you did the fyy/fxx

aren't you suppose to the the derivative of fx

it looks like you took it from the f(x,y) instead of fx(x,y) - Nov 13th 2008, 02:32 PMMathstud28
