In a continuous surface...

In a continuous surface f(x,y) assume the tangent slope at point P, in the direction u, has value a. Prove that in the direction opposite u, the tangent slope at point P must have the value -a

**Tutor's Assistant:** The Advanced Math Tutor can help you get an A on your homework or ace your next test. Is there anything else the Advanced Math Tutor should be aware of?

Why is the surface being continuous necessary for this?
