# 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 ) = 6 − x 2 − y 2 Constraint: x + y − 2 = 0

To determine

To calculate: The maximum value of the function f(x,y)=6x2y2 subject to the constraint x+y2=0 by the use of Lagrange multipliers.

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided function is f(x,y)=6x2y2 subject to the constraint x+y2=0. 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)=6x2y2

The provided constraint is x+y2=0.

So, g(x,y)=x+y2

Now, the new function F is,

F(x,y,λ)=6x2y2λ(x+y2)

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[6x2y2λ(x+y2)]0=2x26x2y2λλ=x6x2y2

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