Minimization and contour point

Consider the minimization of *see attached for equation*
subject to the constraint of *see attached for equation*

(a) Graph the contour point of with y-axis
and x-axis between -2 and 6.(on my paper there is a dot (between point (3,3)
Estimate where extrema values may occur and compute the function values
corresponding to these extrema.

(b) Solve the problem in part (a) with the aid Lagrange multipliers. You may
have to solve the equations numerically. Compare your answers with those in
the part (a).
