In Problems 15-18, find the second partials. ( a ) z x x     ( b ) z y y         ( c )   z x y                 ( d )   z y x 17.   z = x 2 e y 2

(a)

To determine

To calculate: The second partial derivative zxx of the function z=x2ey2.

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided function is z=x2ey2.

Formula used:

For a function z(x,y), the second partial derivative,

When both derivatives are taken with respect to x is zxx=2zx2=x(zx).

When both derivatives are taken with respect to y is zyy=2zy2=y(zy).

When first derivative is taken with respect to x and second derivative is taken with respect to y is zxy=2zyx=y(zx).

When first derivative is taken with respect to y and second derivative is taken with respect to x is zyx=2zxy=x(zy).

Power of x rule for a real number n is such that, if f(x)=xn then f(x)=nxn1.

Constant function rule for a constant c is such that, if f(x)=c then f(x)=0

(b)

To determine

To calculate: The second partial derivative zyy of the function z=x2ey2.

(c)

To determine

To calculate: The second partial derivative zxy of the function z=x2ey2.

(d)

To determine

To calculate: The second partial derivative zyx of the function z=x2ey2.
