(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

the problem asks: Find [tex]\delta[/tex]f/[tex]\delta[/tex]x and [tex]\delta[/tex]f/[tex]\delta[/tex]y at x=1 and y=2 if z=f(x,y) is defined implicitly by 2x[tex]^{}2[/tex]y/z + 3z/xy - xy[tex]\sqrt{}z[/tex] = 3. Note that (1,2,4) is a point on the surface.

2. Relevant equations

Im not really sure how to approach this one.

3. The attempt at a solution

i started off by saying that [tex]\delta[/tex]f/[tex]\delta[/tex]x is equal to [tex]\delta[/tex]z/[tex]\delta[/tex]x and the same thing for y. i went through and found the partial derivatives of the above equation and it turned out really messy, any help would be greatly appreciated.
