In Problems 7-12, find z x  and  z y . 9.   z = ( x y + 1 ) − 2

To determine

To calculate: The partial derivatives zx and zy of the function z=(xy+1)2.

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided function is z=(xy+1)2.

Formula used:

For a function f(x,y), the partial derivative of f with respect to x is calculated by taking the derivative of f(x,y) with respect to x and keeping the other variable y constant. The partial derivative of f with respect to x is denoted by fx and the partial derivative of f with respect to y is denoted by fy.

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.

Chain rule for function f(x)=u(v(x)) is f(x)=u(v(x))v(x).

Coefficient rule for a constant c is such that, if f(x)=cu(x), where u(x) is a differentiable function of x, then f(x)=cu(x).

Calculation:

Consider the provided function, z(x,y)=(xy+1)2
