# Finding Positive Numbers In Exercises 19-22, find three positive numbers x, y, and z that satisfy the given conditions.The sum is 80 and P = x 2 y z is a maximum.

To determine

To calculate: The three positive numbers x,yandz whose sum will be 80 and its maximum is P=x2yz.

Explanation

Given Information:

The given equations x+y+z=80 and P=x2yz is maximum

Formula used:

If f(x,y,z) has a maximum or minimum subject to the constraint g(x,y,z)=0, then it will occur at one of the critical points of the function F defined by:

F=f(x,y,z)λg(x,y,z)

The variable λ is called the Lagrange Multiplier. To find the maximum or minimum of f follow the given steps:

Step 1: Solve the following system of equations:

Fx(x,y,z,λ)=0Fy(x,y,z,λ)=0Fz(x,y,z,λ)=0Fλ(x,y,z,λ)=0

Step 2: Evaluate f at each solution point obtained in the first step. The greatest value yields maximum of f and the smallest value yields minimum of f subject to the constraint g(x,y,z)=0.

Calculation:

Consider the given equations,

f(x)=x2yz

g(x,y,z)=x+y+z80

Now, consider the primary equation,

F=f(x,y,z)λg(x,y,z)F=x2yzλ(x+y+z80)

For critical numbers of F, differentiate F with respect to x,y,z. then set it equal to zero.

Fx=0Fx(x,y,z,λ)=02xyzλ=0

And,

Fy=0Fy(x,y,z,λ)=0x2zλ=0

And,

Fz=0
