f(x) = (xa)2 , where x is a scalar.
Constraintsc’ b <= x <= c;
In each of the following cases:
Write the KuhnTucker conditions, and solve if possible for (i) optimal value of x (ii) the optimal objective
value and (iii) the rate of change of the optimal objective with respect the parameters ‘ and c. Explain your work. . ”Q A A. Minimize f(x) and explain if the solution is a global minimum for each of the following conditions: 1. a<b;'
2. b<a<c
3. a>c B. Maximize f(x) and explain if the solution is a global maximum for each of the following conditions:
1. a < b; ' I
2. b < a < c
3. a > c 2. (5) Problem: minimize f(x) a differentiable function; x is a vector in 11 space.

solution, and t is the distance moved in that direction. The norm of d = 1; How is the vector (1 calculated? 3. (15) The set S : the set of vectors x such that g (x) <= bj for j = 1..n
Prove : if all the ﬁmctions gj(x) are convex than S is convex. 4. (20) Solve and explain2 your solution procedure

Is the solution a global maximum? Explain
What is the rate of change\of the optimal objective with respect to the constants in the constraints? 5. You have entered a race that involves running and swimming. The starting position it is on land at (xl,yl); x1 is <
