HELP :( LINEARIZATION: Please use h in place of \Delta x and dx
I. If y= f(x)= 8 x^2+ 31 x + 12 find
a. dy =16xh+31
b. \Delta y = 8*(x+h)^2+31*(x+h)8x^231x
II. Evaluate each of these quantities if x=10 and h=0.04
a. dy= 37.4
b. \Delta y = 7.6528

for part a) you should have dy =16xh+31h

if you start with y= x d (y = x) is dy = dx or using h instead of dx dy = h for your problem \[ d (y = 8 x^2+ 31 x + 12 )\\ dy = 8 dx^2 + 31 dx \\ dy = 16x dx +31 dx \\ dy = 16x \ h + 31 \ h \]

i thought we leave the constant alone?

oh because it was an x because finding the derivative?

compared with \[ d (y = 31 x ) \\ dy = 31\ dx \]

\[ \frac{d}{dx} (y = 31 x) \\ \frac{d}{dx}y = 31 \frac{d}{dx}x\\ \frac{dy}{dx}= 31\frac{dx}{dx}\\ \frac{dy}{dx}= 31\cdot 1=31 \]

but i was confused why i couldn't leave 31 alone

and why i had to add h in the end..

maybe a better way to think of it is \[ \Delta y = \frac{dy}{dx} \Delta x \] where dy/dx is the derivative of your function \[ \frac{dy}{dx}= 16x + 31\] and \[ \Delta y = \frac{dy}{dx} \Delta x =(16x + 31)\Delta x= (16x + 31)h \]

it would be the same idea, but you use "partial derivatives"

do you have a specific question?

it is a new topic to talk about functions of two variables f(x,y) = x^2 + y^2 for example you won't see those until calculus II

well i know that we have to do this: 2x*y(dy/dx) +2y*(d/dx).. right?

phiBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
are you asking about f(x,y) = x^2 + y^2 or z = x^2 + y^2 ? we find the partial derivative with respect to x (that means treat y as a constant) fx (means partial derivative with respect to x) = 2x fy = 2y we then say \[ \Delta z = 2x \Delta x + 2y \Delta y \]

But you won't see those type of problems.
