## Homework Statement

Derive the Derive the two variable second order Taylor series approximation,

below, to [itex]f(x,y) = x^3 + y^3 – 7xy[/itex] centred at [itex](a,b) = (6,‐4)[/itex]

[itex]f(x,y) ≈ Q(x,y) = f(a,b) + \frac{∂f}{∂x}| (x-a) + \frac{∂f}{∂x}|(y-b) + \frac{1}{2!}[\frac{∂^2f}{∂x^2}| (x-a)^2 + 2\frac{∂^2f}{∂x∂y}\ |(x-a)(y-b)+ \frac{∂^2f}{dy^2}\ |(y-b)^2][/itex]
