chapter 12.3
exercise 35
We have to find the distance from the elliptic paraboloid having equation z =
x2 + 2y 2 to the point A(0, 0, 1).
First we notice that the distance will be smallest, if there is P point on the
paraboloid and AP is perpendicular to the surrfce. So, it must be parallel to its
normal line. its normal line has equation:

n = 2xi + 4yj − k
we have (1)
AP = xi + yj + (z − 1)k

AP is parallel to n, so we have:

x = 2xt
y = 4yt
z − 1 = −t
one of x and y must be zero
ifx = 0, y = 0, we have
z =0+0=0
ifx = 0, we have
y = 4ty ⇒ t = 0.25

ify = 0, we have

So we have 3 possible values for P. (0, 0, 0) , (0, 38 , 34 ) , and ( 12 , 0, − 12 ) for each

case,AP = 1, 4 , and 2 . 4 is the smallest so it is The distance that we should
find
