Question # 1

Find the directional derivative of            f ( x, y ) y 2 ln x at P(1,4) in the direction of
a 3i  3 j .



       f ( x, y ) y 2 ln x

                               1
       f x ( x, y ) y 2 .
                               x
       f x (1, 4)16



       f y ( x, y )2 y ln x
       f y (1, 4) 0


      &

       a 3i  3 j
       ^      a
       a
           || a ||
       ^        3     3
       a         i    j
