Suppose there is a 2-variable function $z=f(x,y)$. Then we say that the differential $dz$ is:

$dz = f_xdx + f_ydy$

Of course, differentials can be extended to 3-variable functions as well. Suppose there is a 3-variable function $w=g(x,y, z)$. Then we say that the differential $dw$ is:

$dw = g_x dx + g_y dy + g_z dz$

- Introduction
**Differentials of Multivariable Functions Overview:**a)__A Review of Differentials__- $dy, dx$ are differentials
- $dy=f'(x)dx$

b)__Differentials of 2 Variable Functions__- Differential $dz$
- $dz=f_xdx+f_ydy$
- An example

c)__Differentials of 3 Variable Functions__- Differential $dw$
- $dw=g_xdx+g_ydy+g_zdz$
- An example
