    I'm confused on how to start Part (B) though. It looks straight-forward, but I don't see how to do it.

    Looks like some rise over run thing. When answering, can you draw it for me?

    There's also a part (C) and a part (D) as well. Once part (B) has been dealt with, I'd like some help with C and D too. Thanks!

    in second part.. the derivatives indicates that y is constant and derivative of z wrt x so the 'k' in the eqn is z then put y=constant (derivative=0) 0= 1/2 *1 + dz/dx

    Can you be more specific, please? Sorry, this is the first time I'm attempting this.

    It says to make a geometric construction. Can someone do this for me?

    I am so glad my professor didn't give me this. I don't know where to begin

    :( I asked over 10 people for help on this. I got one useful answer for part B, but not parts C and D.

    I've done line integrals, stoke's theorem, divergence theorem, conversions in cartesian, polar, spherical, double integrals, triple integrals, Jacobian... I have never came across this.... seriously.

    if oyu want to make geometrical construction.. take y as a constant like y=2 sketch a graph...that will give you a value of slope and as you may think of changing value of y the graph will just shift upward or downward (y=2 was just an example, you can take it as 4,5...u got my point of taking y as a constant)

    part D we are assuming n=0 and z=k in the eqn z=mx+ny +c k=mx+c x=(k-c)/m it will be a horizontal straight line
