Let $F: R^2 \rightarrow R^4$ be
$$F(x,y) = (x^3y,sin(xy),3,xy^3)$$

i) Find the Jacobian matrix of F at (1, pi)
ii) What is the local linear approximation to F at (1, pi)?
iii) Write the equation of the tangent plane to the graph of F(1,pi)
iv)use ii) to compute (0.99, pi+.001) approximately

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution
for i) I got the jacobian being $$\left(\begin{array} 3\pi & 1 \\ -\pi & -1 \\ 0 & 0 \\ \pi^3 & 3\pi^2 \end{array} \right)$$

With a Linear approximation of
$$\left(\begin{array} 3\pi x + y - 3\pi \\ -\pi x - y + 2\pi \\ 3 \\ \pi^3 x + 3\pi^2 y - 3 \pi^3 \end{array} \right)$$

But I am not sure where to go from here to get the tangent plane equation. Any help would be appreciated.
