#### Solution Preview

(a)

f(1,2) = x*e^y

e = 2.7182818 approximately

so f(1,2) = 1*2.718*2.718=7.389

f(1.05,2.1)= 1.05*(2.7182818)^2.1 = 8.574

delta z is a small change in f produced by small

changes in x and ...

#### Solution Summary

A differential is calculated. The expert evaluates the delta z and total differentials. The equation f(x,y) = xe^y is used.
