Calculate the directional derivative, direction, and rate of maximum increase in the direction of v at the given point.

f(x,y) = x^2 + y^3

v = <4,3>

P = (1,2)

2. Relevant equations

I know how to calculate directional derivative but I don't know how to calculaterate of maximum increaseanddirection

3. The attempt at a solution
