Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0OK, your question may not be understandable due to difficulties with typing math. I think what you want is f subxy. Partial dervivative respect to x, then partial y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Your first step is to find derivative x and treat y as a constant

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0fxx(x,y)=6x and fyy(x,y)=2 and fxy(x,y)=6, and I got D=6x(2)(6)^2=12x36 which is the answer... but I don't know where I got 6x(2)(6)^2 from previously.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Your fxx, fyy, fxy is correct. In order to find D you need to in put given values of x and y where applicable. Look over the original question you should have values for x and y.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There are no values for x and y stated in the question... hmm

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This is just a general question preparing you for test, like you said. He is just giving you practice and there was no mention of D; just instinctively attempted to find it. In a real to find D you need to input values. (I see you were absentmindedly putting in 2 and 6 as your values.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Its a multiple choice question and I got it correct last week but can't seem to figure out why I used those values. Haha

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now I remember, critical points. You have to find critical points and input it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Use f sub x and f sub y; set both to zero. Solving f sub y: x=(2y+5)/6 Plug this x value in f sub x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I got x=2 and x=4 but I'm not sure if it has relevance to the question.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yeah, 2, 4 are x values now plug it in other eq and y values.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ok when you plug them in critical values are (2, 7/2) and (4, 19/2). These are critical points potential relative min, max at these points. These are points you work with separately to find D.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Perhaps this going beyond a multiple choice question: in both cases D is greater than zero, f sub xx is greater than zero therefore local or relative max at (2, 7/2) and (4,19/2)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm sorry min (not max)
