(b) Use the result you obtained in part (a) to approxi- mate the minimum value of f subject to the constraint (x 4 ) 2 + (y 4 ) 2 = 4. (c) Confirm graphically that you have found a minimum and not a maximum. (d) Check your approximation using Lagrange multipli- ers and solving the required equations numerically. 5–12 Use Lagrange multipliers to find the maximum and min- imum values of f subject to the given constraint. Also, find the points at which these extreme values occur. 5. f(x, y) = xy ; 4 x 2 + 8 y 2 = 16 6. f(x, y) = x 2 y 2 ; x 2 + y 2 = 25 7. f(x, y) = 4 x 3 + y 2 ; 2 x 2 + y 2 = 1 8. f(x, y) = x 3 y 1; x 2 + 3 y 2 = 16 9. f(x, y, z) = 2 x + y 2 z ; x 2 + y 2 + z 2 = 4 10. f(x, y, z) = 3 x + 6 y + 2 z ; 2 x 2 + 4 y 2 + z 2 = 70 11. f(x, y, z) = xyz ; x 2 + y 2 + z 2 = 1 12. f(x, y, z) = x 4 + y 4 + z 4 ; x 2 + y 2 + z 2 = 1 13–16 True–False Determine whether the statement is true or false. Explain your answer. 13. A “Lagrange multiplier” is a special type of gradient vector. 14. The extrema of f(x, y) subject to the constraint g(x, y) = 0 occur at those points for which f = g . 15. In the method of Lagrange mutlipliers it is necessary to solve a constraint equation g(x, y) = 0 for y in terms of x . 16. The extrema of f(x, y) subject to the constraint g(x, y) = 0 occur at those points at which a contour of f is tangent to the constraint curve g(x, y) = 0. 17–24 Solve using Lagrange multipliers. 17.

(b) Express f(α, β, γ ) as a function of α and β alone, and use a CAS to graph this function of two variables. Con- firm that the result obtained in part (a) is consistent with the graph. 34. The accompanying figure shows the intersection of the el- liptic paraboloid z = x 2 + 4 y 2 and the right circular cyl- inder x 2 + y 2 = 1.
