\(\large 1.\) GIVEN: \(\large F(v^2-x^2,v^2-y^2,v^2-z^2)=0\)

where \(\large v\) is a function of \(x,y,z\)

\(\textbf{SHOW THAT:}\) \[\large \frac{1}{x}\frac{\partial v}{\partial x}+\frac{1}{y}\frac{\partial v}{\partial y}+\frac{1}{z}\frac{\partial v}{\partial z}=\frac{1}{v}\]

\(\large 2.\) GIVEN: \( V=f(X,Y,Z) \) is a homogeneous function in \(x,y,z\) of degree \(\boxed{n}\)

where \( X=\dfrac{\partial V}{\partial x}, Y=\dfrac{\partial V}{\partial y}, Z=\dfrac{\partial V}{\partial z}\)

\(\textbf{SHOW THAT:}\) \[\large X\frac{\partial V}{\partial X}+Y\frac{\partial V}{\partial Y}+Z\frac{\partial V}{\partial Z}=\frac{n}{n-1}V\]

Now for the second one, i understand that the Euler's theroem is necessary but i can't proceed in a definite direction from there
