find the derivatives of the function x, y and z seperately, by keeping the other 2 variables constant in each case. Think of a smart way to keep the other 2 variables constant!

ok, i tried to work out. is the ans -1?

what is you function?\[f(x,y,z)=\sqrt{xyz}\]or\[f(x,y,z)=\sqrt xyz\]?

Looking for something else?

\[D_{\vec v}=\nabla f(3,2,6)\cdot\frac{\vec v}{\|\vec v\|}\]I don't think the answer is one but I haven't done it yet...

is there an advanced equation editor available to super users that has cool features like gradient?

negative one

@mathstina @TuringTest is right

@mathstina first fing the derivative of the function with respect to x, by substituting the y and x values
anonymous

ok

  • TuringTest
oh yeah, I do get -1 :)

ok thanks a lot!

@TuringTest @mathstina no its not -1, atleast as per my calculations

I will show my work and you can spot a mistake if you see one...

ok
TuringTest
  • TuringTest
\[\nabla f=\frac12\langle\sqrt{\frac{yz}x},\sqrt{\frac{xz}y},\sqrt{\frac{xy}z}\rangle\implies\nabla f(3,2,6)=\frac12\langle2,3,1\rangle\]\[\frac{\vec v}{\|\vec v\|}=\frac13\langle-1,-2,2\rangle\]\[\nabla f(3,2,6)\cdot\frac{\vec v}{\|\vec v\|}=\frac16(-2-6+2)=-1\]

Great!

@TuringTest @mathstina im sorry, your right, i made a mistake by putting all -ves as +ves and vice versa. Bravo you two

cheers!

Its ok. u too got the same ans

i got it as 1 previously, now i have -1 :)
