Maximizing a Function given a Constraint

Maximize f(x,y) = sqrt(6- x^2 - y^2) given the constraint x+y-2=0.


Solution Preview

We can write the above question into Lagrangian Equation:
L = (6 - x^2 - y^2)^0.5 - m*(x+y-2)
Where "^" means "to the power of", and m is Lagrangian ...

Solution Summary

A function is maximized given a constraint.
