Let $D\subset \mathbb R^2$, open set. We have a smooth map $f: D\times (0,1)\to \mathbb R^3$. There is a smooth map $u$ from some open subset of $\mathbb R^3$ to $ D$ such that $$u(f(x,y,t)) = (x,y)$$ Show that $u_*$ derivative of $u$ is of rank $2$. $t$ is parameter for $(0,1)$ direction and $(x,y)\in D$.
Any suggestion comment please.
