7 Answers: () (Sorry, sketches are not included, but type Domain of whatever function into WolframAlpha to see what they look like) (a) Domain: {(x, y) R : y }, Range: [, 3], f(, ) = (b) Domain: {(x, y) R : x y }, Range: [0, ), f(5, 4) = 3 (c) Domain: {(x, y) R : x + y 3}, f(, ) = 0 (d) Domain: {(x, y) R : y < x }, Range: R, f( e, 0) = (e) The domain is {(x, y) R : x + y }, and the range is {z R : 0 z }, f(, 0) =. (f) The domain is {(x, y, z) R 3 : x + y + z } and the range is the nonnegative reals: {z R : z 0}, f(/3, /3, /3) = 0 (g) The domain is {(x, y) R : xy 0} and the range is the positive real numbers greater or equal to {z R : z }, f(, 5) = e 0. () (a) The domain is all of R and the range is {z R : z > 0} (i.e. the positive real numbers). (b) Setting f(x, y) = c gives e y x = c. Since the range of the exponential function consists of positive real numbers, if c 0, then the level curve will have no points on it. (c) If c > 0, then the level curve is the parabola y = x + [ + ln(c)]. (d) When c =, we get ln(c) = 0, so your graph should be that of y = x +. (3) (a) The domain is {(x, y) R : y 0} (i.e. any point with y 0). The range is all of R. (b) The level curve at c = 0 looks like the vertical line x = 0 with the point (0, 0) removed (since y cannot equal 0). (c) It should be the graph of y = x with a hole at the origin (since y cannot equal 0). (4) (a) The domain is {(x, y) R : y 0} (i.e. any point with y 0). The range is all of R. (b) The level curve at c = 0 looks like a bunch of vertical lines at x = 0, ±π, ±π,..., except the point y = 0 is removed from each one. (c) It should be the graph of y = sin(x) minus the points where y = 0 (i.e. the points where graph of y = sin(x) crosses the x-axis should be removed, and there should just be a hole in the graph). (5) (a) f(x, y) = x 3 x y has the equation as a level curve at c = 0. (b) No, because (0, 0) is a solution to the equation which is not on the level curve at c =. 7

8 (6) The limit does not exist, because along the path y = x the limit is, and along y = x + the limit is. (7) (a) (b) 3/0 (c) DNE (check x = 0) (d) DNE (check x = 0 and x = y 5 ) (e) 0 (f) DNE (check x = and y = x + ) (g) 0 (h) 0 (i) DNE (j) /3 (k) DNE (l) DNE (m) 6 (n) DNE (o) 0 (8) (a) The domain of f(x, y) is all of R, and the range is the interval ( π/, π/ in R. (b) f(x, y) is continuous everywhere as g(x) = tan (x) is a continuous function in R, so to evaluate the limit we can just plug in the point, and tan () = π/4. (c) By the same logic as in (b), the limit is tan (0) = 0. (d) Observe that the partials are f x = y + x y, f 4 y = xy + x y, 4 which are both continuous everywhere as the denominator can never be 0 (the monomial x y 4 0 always). Therefore f is differentiable everywhere. (e) We calculate the partials already. We get f x (0, 0) = f y (0, 0) = 0, and since f(x, y) = 0, the plane at (0, 0) is simply z = 0. At (, ), f x (, ) =, and f y (, ) =, and since f(, ) = π/4, the plane is z π 4 = (x ) + (y ). (f) The linearization consists solely of isolating z in the previous part, so the linearization is z = L(x, y) = π 4 + (x ) + (y ). So L(.,.9) = π 4 + (. ) + (.9 ) = π

9 (9) (a) f x = xy cos(x y), f y = x cos(x y) (b) f x = y sec (xy) + y e xy ln(y) x, f y = x sec (xy) + xye xy + xy. y[zx cos(xz) sin(xz)] z. (c) f x = y cos(xz), f y = sin(xz), f z z = (d) f x = yzx yz, f y = zx yz ln(x), f z = yx yz ln(x). (0) f xxy = 4y 3 e xy + xy 5 e xy. () z = x y + 3, an elliptic paraboloid. () 8(x ) 6(y 3) + 40(z ) = 0 (3) (a) Hyperboloid of one sheet (b) Sphere (c) The intersection can be described as the union of two circles: x + y =, z = 3, x + y =, z = 3. (4) (a) The domain of f(x, y) is the set of points (x, y) with y 0. In set notation {(x, y) R y 0}. Both sin (x) and y are nonnegative, so we expect the range to be a subset of the nonnegative reals. /y can be any positive number, and sin (x) can be 0, so the range is, in fact, all nonnegative reals: {z R : z 0}. (b) At c =, we get sin (x)/y =, so y can never be 0. Multiplying, we get y = sin (x), or y = ± sin(x). So you should graph both sin(x) and sin(x), with holes at every point where y = 0. (c) The function is continuous at (0, ), so we can plug in the point to get a limit of 0. (d) Along the y-axis, the limit is 0, and along y = x it is (need to use L Hopital s rule twice). Therefore the limit does not exist. (e) No, because the limit does not exist, so the second condition for continuity fails. sin(x) cos(x) (f) f x =, and since sin(x) cos(x) = sin(x), we can write this as f y x = sin(x). From this we get y f xy = y sin(x). 3 If you left f x in its original form, you would get f xy = 4 sin(x) cos(x), y3 both answers are acceptable. We also get f y = sin (x) y 3. 9

10 (g) We find f(x, y) is defined for (x, y) with y 0. In this region, both f x and f y are continuous, and so f is differentiable on its domain (namely, the one we found in (a)). (h) We found f x and f y in the previous part. f x (π/4, ) = and f y (π/4, ) =, and z 0 = f(π/4, ) = /, so the equation is (i) The linear approximation is We get L(π/, ) = + π 4. (j) f(π/, ) =. (k) 3/ 5 (l), (m), z = (x π ) (y ). 4 L(x, y) = + (x π ) (y ). 4 (5) (a) The domain is all of R 3, the range is all of R. (b) It is continuous everywhere as all functions involved are continuous, and the sum and composition of continuous functions are continuous. (c) Since f is continuous, we can just plug in the point (0, 0, ) to get 4. (d) 3 (e) u can be any vector x, y, /3 with x + y = 8/9. (f) A circle. (6) (a) Every point in R except the point (0, 0). (b) Along the line y = mx, we get a limit of m +m. m = yields a limit of 0, m = 0 yields a limit of, therefore limit does not exist. (c) No, because it s not continuous. (d) f(x, y) is a quotient of two polynomials and the denominator is not zero for (x, y) (0, 0). (e) We know f(x, y) is defined at all such points, so show that the partials are continuous at all points other than the origin. (f) z = x y, or z = (x ) (y ) if you don t simplify. (g),, or,, (h) L(x, y) = (x ) (y ), L(, ) =. 5 5 (i) f(, ) = 0, so the approximation was off by 5 =.04. 0

11 (j), and,, respectively. (k) /, or. (l) c = 0: the lines y = ±x, with a hole at the origin. c = : the y-axis with a hole at the origin, c = : the x-axis, with a hole at the origin. (m) 3/ 5 (n) /, /, /, / (o) /, or /, is the vector you want. You should sketch this vector at (, ) to the level curve at c = 0. (7).05 + π 90 (8) 4x = y + z, a cone. (9) f xx = e x sin(y) and f yy = e x sin(y), so f xx + f yy = 0. (0) If you compute both u xx and u tt correctly, it should work out. () 0.65 () 0π cm 3 (3) 4 (4) C/s (5) w r = π, w θ = π (6) All points on the line y = x + (7) f(3, ) =, 3, x + 3y =.
