UNC-Wilmington ECN 321 Department of Economics and Finance Dr. Chris Dumas Homework 4 (Due Thursday, October 16) Solve the following nonlinear optimization problems without constraints . Be sure to read the handout on the class website that covers nonlinear optimization problems without constraints! (1) max U = 10 + 3ln(X) + X -1 X subject to: no constraints (2) max U = 20 + 100X – 2X 2 X subject to: no constraints (3) max U = 40 + 60X 1 - (1/4)X 1 2 + 100X 2 - (1/3)X 2 2 X 1 , X 2 subject to: no constraints (4) max U = 300X 1 + 6000X 2 - (1/3)X 1 2 - 3X 2 2 – (1/4)X 1 X 2 X 1 , X 2 subject to: no constraints Solve the following non-linear optimization problems with constraints .

    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.
