# Using Lagrange Multipliers In Exercises 1-12, use Lagrange multipliers to find the indicated extremum. Assume that x and y are positive. See Example 1.Maximize f ( x , y ) = 2 x + 2 x y + y Constraint: 2 x + y = 100

To determine

To calculate: The maximum value of the function f(x,y)=2x+2xy+y subject to the constraint 2x+y=100 by the use of Lagrange multipliers.

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided function is f(x,y)=2x+2xy+y subject to the constraint 2x+y=100. Consider that the variables x and y are positive.

Formula used:

Method of Lagrange multipliers,

If the function f(x,y) contains a maximum or minimum subject to the constraint g(x,y)=0 then the maximum or minimum can occur at one of the critical numbers of the function F is,

F(x,y,λ)=f(x,y)λg(x,y) where, λ is a Lagrange multiplier.

Steps to determine the minimum or maximum of the function f.

1. Solve the system of equations,

Fx(x,y,λ)=0Fy(x,y,λ)=0Fλ(x,y,λ)=0

2. Determine the value of the function f at each solution obtained from the step 1.

The largest value gives the maximum value of function f subject to the constraint g(x,y)=0 and the lowest value gives the minimum value of function f subject to the constraint g(x,y)=0.

Calculation:

Consider the function,

f(x,y)=2x+2xy+y

The provided constraint is,

2x+y=1002x+y100=0

So, g(x,y)=2x+y100

Now, the new function F is,

F(x,y,λ)=2x+2xy+yλ(2x+y100)

Find the partial derivative of function F to determine the critical number for F.

The partial derivatives of F with respect to x and then set it to zero.

Fx(x,y,λ)=x[2x+2xy+yλ(2x+y100)]0=2+2y2λy=λ1

The partial derivatives of F with respect to y and then set it to zero
