3.6. EXTREMA 335 while the third says that either λ = 1 or z = 0 . Since only one of the three named λ -values can hold, two of the coordinates must be zero, which means in terms of the constraint that the third is ± 1. Thus we have six relative critical points, with respective f -values f ( ± 1 , 0 , 0) = 2 f (0 , ± 1 , 0) = 1 f (0 , 0 , ± 1) = 1 . Combining this with the critical value 0 at the origin, we have min x 2 + y 2 + z 2 1 (2 x 2 + y 2 z 2 ) = f (0 , 0 , ± 1) = 1 max x 2 + y 2 + z 2 1 (2 x 2 + y 2 z 2 ) = f ( ± 1 , 0 , 0) = 2 . Multiple Constraints The method of Lagrange Multipliers can be extended to problems in which

### What students are saying

• 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.
