(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); use chain rule to evaluate partial derivative of g with respect to theta at (r,[theta])=(2*sqrt(2),pi/4), where g(x,y) = 1/(x+y^2), x=rsin[theta] and y=rcos[theta]

r^2=x^2+y^2 and tan[theta]=y/x

3. The attempt at a solution

I understand how to use the chain rule for partial derivatives, but I can't seem to figure out any of the problems that use polar coordinates. please help.
