proving that a certain function is not differentiable at $(0,0)$ [duplicate]

Let's consider the function given by: $$F\left( {x,y} \right) = \begin{cases} \frac{{xy}}{{\sqrt {x^2 + y^2 } }}\text{ when }\,\,\,\,(x,y) \ne (0,0) \\ \\ \\ \\ \,\,\,\,\,\,0\hspace{10ex}\text{ if } \,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,\,(x,y)=(0,0) \end{cases}$$

I proved a lot of things of this function, the partial derivated exist everywhere, in particular at $(0,0)$ , But I want to prove that $F$ is not differentiable at $(0,0)$, I I tried by definition but it does not work. Please help me !!

Correct hint: If you've computed the partial derivatives at $(0,0)$, you know they're both $0$. So, if $f$ were differentiable, you'd have $$\lim_{(x,y)\to (0,0)}\frac{f(x,y)}{\sqrt{x^2+y^2}}=0.$$ Is this so?
Alternatively, if $f$ were differentiable, the directional derivative in every direction $\vec v$ would have to be given by $\nabla f(0,0)\cdot\vec v$.
