State and prove Euler’s Theorem for three variables.

Solution

Statement: If u=f(x, y, z) is a homogeneous function of degree n, then -x(delu)/(delx)+y(delu)/(dely)+z(delu)/(delz)=n u

Let, u=f(x, y, z) is a homogeneous function of degree n.
Putting X = x t, Y = y t, Z = z t.
f(X,Y,Z) = tn f(x,y,z) ………. (1)
Diff LHS w.r.t t,

(delf)/(delt)=(delf)/(delx).(delx)/(delt)+(delfdely)/(delydelt)+(delfdelz)/(delzdelt)

(delf)/(delt)=x(delf)/(delx).+y(delf)/(dely)+z(delf)/(delz)…… (2)

Diff RHS w.r.t. t,

(delf)/(delt)=nt^(n-1)f(x,y,z)

Now put t = 1, we get (delf)/(delt)=nf(x,y,z)……… (3)

From equation 2 and 3, we get

x(delf)/(delx).+y(delf)/(dely)+z(delf)/(delz)=nf(x,y,z)

x(delf)/(delx).+y(delf)/(dely)+z(delf)/(delz)=n u

Hence proved
