Determine whether the statement is true or false. If it is true, explain why. If it is false, explain why or give an example that disproves the statement.1. f y ( a , b ) = lim y → b f ( a , y ) − f ( a , b ) y − b

To determine

Whether the statement, fy(a,b)=limybf(a,y)f(a,b)yb is true or false.

Explanation

Equation used:

fy(a,b)=limh0f(a,b+h)f(a,b)h (1)

Reason:

Compare the equation (1) with the given equation h=yb .

Substitute h=yb in the equation (1),

fy(a,b
