Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok, now since we can't plug in anything that will change y, let's multiply the gradient by a scalar to get the jcomponent equal to 2 like it is for the plane

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2right, and so we get?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2grad f=<4x,2,4z> that y can't just appear from nowhere

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so what value of x makes the icomponents equal for the plane and grad f ? what value of z makes the kcomponents equal?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2from the equation as we have it we need x=1/4 and z=3/4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0why qns with sphere have 2 sets of points?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2hm... seems strange that y does not matter. Maybe I messed this one up :P

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the ans fot this qn is (1/4, 2,3/4)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2the way we did it it looks like y does not matter, so (1/4,y,3/4) seems strange that y does not matter though, maybe I made a mistake... not sure

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the point for y is 0 or 1?

TuringTest

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2neither, the result says y can be anything, so just write y=y

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1isnt y a function if x and z to begin with? y = x^2 + z^2; therefore y=1/4
