corresponding points are ( 2 , 4 ) and ( 2 , 4 ) . The segment AB : On this segment y = 4, 2 x 2, hence f(x, 4 ) = 2 · x · 4 x 4 = 7 x 4. The maximum value occurs at x = 2 and the minimum value at x 2. The corresponding points on the segment AB are ( 2 , 4 ) and ( 2 , 4 ) Step 3. Conclusions. Since the global extrema occur either at critical points in the interior of the domain or on the boundary of the domain, the candidates for global extrema are the following points: ³ 1 2 , 1 2 ´ ,( 2 , 4 ), ( 2 , 4 ) We compute the values of f = 2 xy x y at these points: f ³ 1 2 , 1 2 ´ = 2 · 1 2 · 1 2 1 2 1 2 1 2 f( 2 , 4 ) = 2 · ( 2 ) · 4 + 2 4 18 2 , 4 ) = 2 · 2 · 4 2 4 = 10 We conclude that the global maximum is 2 , 4 ) = 10 and the global minimum is 2 , 4 ) 18.

The constraint curve is g(x,y) = x 2 + y 2 4 = 0, hence g = ± 2 x, 2 y ² and f = ± 3 , 2 ² . The Lagrange Condition f = λ g is thus ± 3 , 2 ² = λ ± 2 2 y ² . That is, 3 = λ · 2 x 2 = λ · 2 y Note that λ ³= 0. Step 2. Solve for x and y using the constraint. The Lagrange equations gives 3 = λ · 2 x 2 = λ · 2 y x = 3 2 λ y =− 1 λ (1) We substitute x and y in the equation of the constraint and solve for λ .

Step 1. Write out the Lagrange Equations. The gradient vectors are f = ³ 2 xy, x 2 ´ and g = ± 8 18 y ² , hence the Lagrange Condition f = λ g gives ³ 2 xy, x 2 ´ = λ ± 8 18 y ² = ± 8 λx, 18 λy ² We obtain the following Lagrange Equations: 2 xy = 8 λx x 2 = 18

The points ( 0 , 2 ) and ( 0 , 2 ) satisfy the Lagrange Equations for λ = 0. If x ²= 0, the second Lagrange Equation implies that y ²= 0.
