Suppose that z   =   4   −   x 2 −   y 2 +   2 x   −   4 y . Solve   z x =   0  and  z y = 0 simultaneously to find the critical point(s) for the graph of this function.

To determine

To calculate: The critical points of the function z=4x2y2+2x4y.

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided function is z=4x2y2+2x4y.

Formula used:

The critical points are the point(s) that satisfy zx=0 and zy=0.

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

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

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

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 function, z=4x2y2+2x4y.

Recall that, 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 and the partial derivative of f with respect to y is calculated by taking the derivative of f(x,y) with respect to y and keeping the other variable x constant
