# Find the minimum value of z =   2 x 2 +   y 2 − x y subject to the constraint 2 x   + y =   8 .

To determine

To calculate: The minimum value of z=2x2+y2xy subject to the constraint 2x+y=8.

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided function is z=2x2+y2âˆ’xy subject to the constraint 2x+y=8.

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 Î» to form the objective function F(x,y,Î»)=f(x,y)+Î»g(x,y).

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

(3) The critical points of F(x,y,Î») are the points that satisfy âˆ‚Fâˆ‚x=0, âˆ‚Fâˆ‚y=0, and âˆ‚Fâˆ‚Î»=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 fâ€²(x)=nxnâˆ’1.

Constant function rule for a constant c is such that, if f(x)=c then fâ€²(x)=0.

Coefficient rule for a constant c is such that, if f(x)=câ‹…u(x), where u(x) is a differentiable function of x, then fâ€²(x)=câ‹…uâ€²(x).

Calculation:

Consider the function, z=2x2+y2âˆ’xy.

The provided constraint is 2x+y=8.

According to the Lagrange multipliers method,

The objective function is F(x,y,Î»)=f(x,y)+Î»g(x,y).

Thus, f(x,y)=2x2+y2âˆ’xy and g(x,y)=2x+yâˆ’8.

Substitute 2x2+y2âˆ’xy for f(x,y) and 2x+yâˆ’8 for g(x,y) in F(x,y,Î»)=f(x,y)+Î»g(x,y).

F(x,y,Î»)=2x2+y2âˆ’xy+Î»(2x+yâˆ’8)

Since, the critical points of F(x,y,Î») are the points that satisfy âˆ‚Fâˆ‚x=0, âˆ‚Fâˆ‚y=0, and âˆ‚Fâˆ‚Î»=0
