(solution) Let f(x, y) be a two-variable, fourth-order homogenous function


Let f(x, y) be a two-variable, fourth-order homogenous function satisfying

fy(-1,-4) = -2; fxx(2, 8) = 8; fxy(1, 4) = 4. Then f(1; 4) equals

Question 13 is the one I need help on. I can't seem to answer it without knowing anything about the degree of the function. I know that the degree and the order aren't the same thing and that for a homogeneous function, f(tx,ty)=t^n*f(x,y), where n is the degree.
