Im not sure if this is the right section to post this question..(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Calculate the differential of the map

f:R^3 -> R^2 , (x ,y ,z)->(xy^{3}+ x^{2}z , x^{3}y^{2}z) at (1 ,2 ,3) in the direction (1 ,-1 , 4)

I know how to get the differential of the map (finding the jacobian matrix) but the only part i am not sure about is the 'in the direction' part. how do i use (1 ,-1 ,4) in trying to get the answer?

thanks.
