Use the method of Lagrange multipliers. (b) Find the maximum and minimum value of 2. (8) Let g : R 2 R 2 be defined by g ( u, v ) = ( u 2 +2 uv, v ) and let f : R 3 R 2 be differentiable and satisfy f (1 , 2 , 3) = (4 , 5) and f (1 , 2 , 3) = 1 0 2 - 1 - 1 0 . What is h (1 , 2 , 3)? Here h = g f , the composition of g and f . 3.(6) True or False? No partial credit. (a) If a symmetric 2 × 2 matrix A is negative definite, then det A < 0. (b) If a differentiable function f : R n R has an absolute maximum, then it will be attained at a point where f has a local extremum. 4. (8) Consider the curve γ of intersection of the two level surfaces x 2 + 3 y 2 + 2 z 2 = 6 x 2 + y 2 - z 2 = 1 . (a) Use implicit differentiation to determine

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
