Given:  Φ = x²— y²

We know that

$\frac{\pmb{\delta} \phi }{\pmb{\delta}x }=u=2x$

Hence, value of u at (4, 5) is:

u = 2x

= 2 × 4 = 8 units

Again, we know that

$\frac{\pmb{\delta} \phi }{\pmb{\delta}y }$ = – v

= −(−2y) = 2y

Or                                                             v = −2y

= −2 × 5 = −10 units
