We went over this breifly in class and i'm confused on it. Were doing first order only and this is the problem: z = 3x^2*y^3*e^(5x-3y) + ln(2x^2 + 3y^3) I know your susposed to Fx(x,y) and treat X or Y as a constant, depending, upon how you want to start, but i'm still unclear as to how to solve this.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Thanks for the help.
