Find the local maximum and minimum values and saddle points of the function. If you have three-dimensional graphing software, graph the function with a domain and viewpoint that reveal all the important aspects of the function.
51. f(x, y) = x2− xy + y2 + 9x – 6y + 10
To find: The local maximum, local minimum and saddle point of the function, .
Second Derivative Test:
“Suppose the second partial derivatives of f are continuous on a disk with center , and suppose that and (that is is a critical point of f). Let
If and , then is a local minimum.
If and , then is a local maximum.
If , then is not a local maximum or minimum and it is called a saddle point”.
The given function is, .
Take the partial derivative in the given function with respect to x and obtain .
Take the partial derivative in the given with respect to y and obtain .
Set the above derivative to 0 and solve the equations (1) and (2) to get the values of x and y.
From the equation (1),
Substitute in the equation (2) and obtain the value of x.
Substitute in the equation and obtain y value
