Help finding curvatures of x(u,v)?
I have a homework due in about 9 hours and I really need help, I don't understand how to do these types of problems and the professor is really hard to understand.
The function is x(u,v) = (u+v, u-v, uv), at the point P = (2,0,1)
The question says to Find the Gauss curvature, mean curvature, principal curvatures and the corre-sponding principal directions of the function.
I've gone through this but there's just so many calculations to do and I feel like I must've messed up somewhere.
I know that in order to find all these things, you need the first and second fundamental forms, along with the principal normal.
Can someone please help me?

Even if you open this thread past the time when my homework is due, please still answer it if you can.
