Question 1.
In each of the following cases, determine whether the following function is homogeneous or not. If it is so, find the degree. Solution: It is not a homogeneous function ∴ It is a homogeneous function with degree 3.  ∴ It is homogeneous function of degree 0. ∴ It is not a homogeneous function Question 2.
Prove that f(x, y) = x3 – 2x2 y + 3xy2 + y3 is homogeneous; what is the degree? Verify Euler’s Theorem for f.
Solution:
f (x, y) = x3 – 2x2y + 3xy2 + y3
f(tx, ty) = t3x3 – 2(t2x2)(ty) + 3(tx)(t2y2) + t3y3
= t3 [x3 – 2x2y + 3xy2 + y3]
f(tx, ty) = t3 f(x, y)
‘f’ is a homogeneous function of degree 3. By Euler’s theorem, we have ∴ Euler’s Theorem verified

Question 3.
Prove that g(x, y) = x log ($$\frac{y}{x}$$) is homogeneous; what is the degree? Verify Euler’s Theorem for g.
Solution:  ∴ Euler’s Theorem verified Question 4. Solution: Question 5. Solution: ∴ ‘f’ is a homogeneous function of degree 1. By Euler’s theorem, we have Question 6. Solution:  ### Samacheer Kalvi 12th Maths Solutions Chapter 8 Differentials and Partial Derivatives Ex 8.7 Additional Problems
