Hi am trying to solve this Taylor series with 3 variables but my result is not equal to the solution- So i think i might be wrong expanding the taylor series, or the solution is not correct

Find an a approximated value for the function f(x,y,z) = 2x + ( 1 + y) * sin z at the point

x= 0.1 y = 0.2 z = 0.3 [asnwer = 0.5546]

Use only linear terms ( dx dy dz has only 1 power)

df = dx*[tex]\frac{f'(f)}{f'(x)}[/tex] + dy*[tex]\frac{f'(f)}{f'(y)}[/tex] + dz *[tex]\frac{f'(f)}{f'(z)}[/tex] + ...

So i started evaluating the function at the point (0,0,0) which gives me the value 0. Then i expand the taylor series like this

df = dx *[tex]\frac{f'(f)}{f'(x)}[/tex] + dy *[tex]\frac{f'(f)}{f'(y)}[/tex] + dz *[tex]\frac{f'(f)}{f'(z)}[/tex] + dxdy *[tex]\frac{f''(f)}{f'(x)f'(y) }[/tex] + dxdz *[tex]\frac{f'(f)}{f''(x)f'(z)}[/tex] + dydz *[tex]\frac{f''(f)}{f'(y)f'(z)}[/tex] + dxdydz [tex]\frac{f'''(f)}{f'(x)f'(y)f'(z)}[/tex]

Then i calculate the differential equations

[tex]\frac{f'(f)}{f'(x)}[/tex] = 2

[tex]\frac{f'(f)}{f'(y)}[/tex] = sin z

[tex]\frac{f'(f)}{f'(z)}[/tex] = (1 + y) cos z

[tex]\frac{f''(f)}{f'(x)f'(y) }[/tex] = 0

[tex]\frac{f'(f)}{f''(x)f'(z)}[/tex] = 0

[tex]\frac{f''(f)}{f'(y)f'(z)}[/tex] = cos z

[tex]\frac{f'''(f)}{f'(x)f'(y)f'(z)}[/tex] = 0

So my final formula is

df = 2 dx + dz * cos(0) + dydz * cos (0)

An evaluating that formula in (0.1,0.2,0.3)

df(0.1,0.2,0.3) = 2 *0.1 + 0.3 + 0.06 = 0.56

But the solution given by the exercise is 0.5546

**1. Homework Statement**Find an a approximated value for the function f(x,y,z) = 2x + ( 1 + y) * sin z at the point

x= 0.1 y = 0.2 z = 0.3 [asnwer = 0.5546]

Use only linear terms ( dx dy dz has only 1 power)

**2. Homework Equations**df = dx*[tex]\frac{f'(f)}{f'(x)}[/tex] + dy*[tex]\frac{f'(f)}{f'(y)}[/tex] + dz *[tex]\frac{f'(f)}{f'(z)}[/tex] + ...

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**So i started evaluating the function at the point (0,0,0) which gives me the value 0. Then i expand the taylor series like this

df = dx *[tex]\frac{f'(f)}{f'(x)}[/tex] + dy *[tex]\frac{f'(f)}{f'(y)}[/tex] + dz *[tex]\frac{f'(f)}{f'(z)}[/tex] + dxdy *[tex]\frac{f''(f)}{f'(x)f'(y) }[/tex] + dxdz *[tex]\frac{f'(f)}{f''(x)f'(z)}[/tex] + dydz *[tex]\frac{f''(f)}{f'(y)f'(z)}[/tex] + dxdydz [tex]\frac{f'''(f)}{f'(x)f'(y)f'(z)}[/tex]

Then i calculate the differential equations

[tex]\frac{f'(f)}{f'(x)}[/tex] = 2

[tex]\frac{f'(f)}{f'(y)}[/tex] = sin z

[tex]\frac{f'(f)}{f'(z)}[/tex] = (1 + y) cos z

[tex]\frac{f''(f)}{f'(x)f'(y) }[/tex] = 0

[tex]\frac{f'(f)}{f''(x)f'(z)}[/tex] = 0

[tex]\frac{f''(f)}{f'(y)f'(z)}[/tex] = cos z

[tex]\frac{f'''(f)}{f'(x)f'(y)f'(z)}[/tex] = 0

So my final formula is

df = 2 dx + dz * cos(0) + dydz * cos (0)

An evaluating that formula in (0.1,0.2,0.3)

df(0.1,0.2,0.3) = 2 *0.1 + 0.3 + 0.06 = 0.56

But the solution given by the exercise is 0.5546
