## Homework Statement

Okay so I was given this question to start calculating error on other problems.

Consider the equation F(x,y,z) = x^4+2y^3+5yz+5. Let the uncertainty in x be represented by the variable dx, the uncertainty in y be represented by the variable dy, and the uncertainty in z be represented by the variable dz.

## Homework Equations

I was given this equation to work from Δfx(x,y,z) = abs(f(x+Δx,y,z)-f(x,y,z))

## The Attempt at a Solution

Okay so I started to use the equation I was given, only substituting dx for Δx. Then I "solved" for Δfx to get Δx*y*z. Only that is not the right answer.

I am not sure how to incorporate the equation and I am unclear on how to proceed with this problem.
