View the step-by-step solution to:


 Consider the following optimization problem: 

Max x12+


subject to : 5x12+ 6x1x2 + 5x22 ≤ 1 

where x1 and x2 are choice variables:

1) Write the Lagrangean and the Kuhn-Tucker conditions.

2)State and verify the second order condition. Distinguish between sufficient and necessary condi-


3)Is the constraint qualification condition satisfied? Show clearly why or why not.

4) Solve the Kuhn-Tucker conditions for the optimal choice: x1, x2 and λ, Use the second order

condition to analyze your solution and determine which of your stationary points is a maximum.
