You need to evaluate partial derivative `(del E)/(del a),` hence, you need to differentiate the function with respect to a, considering b,c,d as constants, such that:

`(del E)/(del a) = c^2 + 5`

You need to evaluate partial derivative `(del E)/(del b), ` hence, you need to differentiate the function with respect to b, considering a,c,d as constants, such that:

`(del E)/(del b) = 2bc`

You need to evaluate partial derivative `(del E)/(del c), ` hence, you need to differentiate the function with respect to c, considering a,b,d as constants, such that:

`(del E)/(del c) = 2ac + b^2`

You need to evaluate partial derivative `(del E)/(del d),` hence, you need to differentiate the function with respect to d, considering a,b,c as constants, such that:

`(del E)/(del d)= 5`

**Hence, evaluating the partial derivatives yields `(del E)/(del a) = c^2 + 5, (del E)/(del b) = 2bc, (del E)/(del c) = 2ac + b^2, (del E)/(del d) = 5.` **
