First partial derivative with respect to what? You have to know which variable you are taking the derivative with respect to when you try to find the partial derivative of a function of several variables.

If you wish simply to get answers, go to www.quickmath.com it will do derivatives, integrals etc., for the above problem use http://www.hostsrv.com/webmab/app1/MSP/quickmath/02/pageGenerate?site=quickmath&s1=calculus&s2=differentiate&s3=advanced [Broken].

Those who would help you here will require that you post some work (anything, an attempt, even if it is wrong) before they will respond.
