Show me the steps to solve The height of a hill (in feet) is given by

`h(x,y)=18(16-4x^(2)-3y^(2)+2xy+28x-18y)`

where

`x`

is the distance (in miles) east and

`y`

the distance (in miles) north of Bolton. (a) In what direction is the slope of the hill steepest at the point 2 miles north and 3 miles west of Bolton? (8 points) (b) What is the steepest slope at that point? (8 points)
