Multiplier Theorem. Thus, if a constrained local extremum occurs at ( x , y ), there is a number λ so that f ( x , y ) = λ∇ g ( x , y ). Now f ( x , y ) = λ∇ g ( x , y ) < 2 xy 2 , 2 yx 2 > = λ < 2 x ,2 y > 0 = 2 xy ( y - x )( y + x ) x = 0 or y = 0 or y = x or y = - x by performing a little routine algebraic magic. Solving each of the systems consisting of (a) x 2 + y 2 = 1 and x = 0 , (b) x 2 + y 2 = 1 and y = 0 , (c) x 2 + y 2 = 1 and y = x , (d) x 2 + y 2 = 1 and y = - x , yields the eight (8) desired (constrained) critical points. Since the Extreme-value Theorem ensures we have absolute extrema, we only need to know the function values at these points. Here are the solutions to the systems: If (x,y) is an (a) or (b) pair, then f(x,y) = 0, the minimum value. Taking into account the interior analysis, we see the minimum actually occurs on the x- and y- axis points in the closed disk. If (x,y) is a (c) or (d) pair, then f(x,y) = 1/4, the maximum value.//

(10 pts.) Compute the surface area of the portion of the paraboloid defined by z = 16 - x 2 - y 2 that lies above the xy-plane. Obviously we have passed to polar coordinates along the way and then used the u-substitution u = 1 + 4 r 2 to accomplish our goal. The intersection of the paraboloid with the xy-plane is an easy to understand circle centered at the origin with radius 4. This provides the r and θ limits of integration.

    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.
