Finding Partial Derivatives of Three Variable Functions (00:60)


To take the partial derivative of a three variable function, you need to take one partial derivative with respect to each variable. When taking a partial derivative, remember to treat other variables as if they were constants.

Calculate the First Order Partial Derivative (02:13)

By taking the first order partial derivative with respect to x, we can see that the constants here, y and z, just end up as the coefficient in front of the x squared term.

Simplifying the Partial Derivative (02:13)

Once the function has been differentiated, simplify.
