find all the critical points of the function f(x,y) = (x-2y)e^(x^2-y^2) and classify them as local maxima, local minima or saddle points. How is this differentiated?

You need to find where To find differentiate with respect to x holding y constant To find differentiate with respect to y holding x constant

You need to use the product rule it is... Differentiating with respect to x (finding ) make Now apply After this you need to differentiate for y. (finding ) Then solve for
