## Question:

Find the maximum and minimum values of the function f ( x , y ) = x 2 y f(x,y)=x2y subject to {eq}3 x 2 + 5 y 2 = 45 3x^2+5y^2=45 {/eq}

## Maximum and Minimum

We can find the Absolute extremes of a function of two variables with the Lagrange multipliers, first, we find the critical points of the function, then we compare the points, the highest is the Absolute maximum value.

View this answerWe have the function

{eq}f(x,y)=x^{2}y {/eq}

Differentiating the function

{eq}f_x=2\,xy \\ f_y={x}^{2} \\ {/eq}

Constraints:

{eq}g_{x,y}=...
