Find the maximum value of z   =   2 x y   − 3 x 2 −   5 y 2 subject to the constraint x   +   y   = 5 .

To determine

To calculate: The maximum value of z=2xy3x25y2 subject to the constraint x+y=5.

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided function is z=2xy3x25y2 subject to the constraint x+y=5.

Formula used:

According to the Lagrange multipliers method to obtain maxima or minima for a function z=f(x,y) subject to the constraint g(x,y)=0,

(1) Find the critical values of f(x,y) using the new variable λ to form the objective function F(x,y,λ)=f(x,y)+λg(x,y).

(2) The critical points of f(x,y) are the critical values of F(x,y,λ) which satisfies g(x,y)=0.

(3) The critical points of F(x,y,λ) are the points that satisfy Fx=0, Fy=0, and Fλ=0, that is, the points which make all the partial derivatives of zero.

For a function f(x,y), the partial derivative of f with respect to y is calculated by taking the derivative of f(x,y) with respect to y and keeping the other variable x constant. The partial derivative of f with respect to y is denoted by fy.

Power of x rule for a real number n is such that, if f(x)=xn then f(x)=nxn1.

Constant function rule for a constant c is such that, if f(x)=c then f(x)=0.

Coefficient rule for a constant c is such that, if f(x)=cu(x), where u(x) is a differentiable function of x, then f(x)=cu(x).

Calculation:

Consider the function, z=2xy3x25y2.

The provided constraint is x+y=5.

According to the Lagrange multipliers method,

The objective function is F(x,y,λ)=f(x,y)+λg(x,y).

Thus, f(x,y)=2xy3x25y2 and g(x,y)=x+y5.

Substitute 2xy3x25y2 for f(x,y) and x+y5 for g(x,y) in F(x,y,λ)=f(x,y)+λg(x,y).

F(x,y,λ)=2xy3x25y2+λ(x+y5)

Since, the critical points of F(x,y,λ) are the points that satisfy Fx=0, Fy=0, and Fλ=0
