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

Find the first partial derivatives of:

1. f(x,y) = x^y

2. u = x^(y/z)

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

f_x = y*x^(y-1)

f_y = lnx?

u_x = (y/z)*x^((y/z)-1)

u_y = lnx/z?

u_z = ylnx/z?

I'm not really sure how to do these right. =/ I would really appreciate any help.
