Find the direction in which the function f(x,y)=x^2+sin(4y) increses most rapidly at the point P_{0}=(1,0). Then find the derivative of f in this direction.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I think I have to find the gradient at point P_{0}and then find a unit vector is this right?
