Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Partial derivative you just treat the other variable as if it were a constant.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so with the first partial derivative with respect to y, you will use the chain rule and product rule, and view x as a constant so \[f _{y}=xe^y/(2\sqrt{xy}) +\sqrt{xy}e^y\] for x\[f_{x}=ye^y/(2\sqrt{xy})\], to make it clearer, you can use the product rule again, but the e^y would just be a derivative of a constant and the sum is added to zero.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it is like pj said, you view whicher variable you are not differentiating as a constant.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0xy^(1/2)*d/dy e^y = xy^(1/2)e^y. remember e^y or x will = the same as a derivative. The second part of the product rule would be f(y)*g'(y)
