# Chapter 14 - Partial Derivatives - 14.1 Functions of Several Variables - 14.1 Exercises: 14

The domain is $\mathcal{D}=\left\{(x,y)|y\leq\frac{1}{3}x\right\}$ and it is shown in the figure below

#### Work Step by Step

The argument of every even order root has to be positive so we need that $x-3y\ge0$ which gives $3y\le x$ and finally $y\le\frac{1}{3}x.$ We can now write for the domain $$\mathcal{D}=\left\{(x,y)|y\le\frac{x}{3}\right\}.$$ Geometrically, this is the region of $xy$ plane under the line $y=\frac{1}{3}x$ (including this line). It is shown on the graph below
