11.9 Lagrange Multipliers Chapter 11-Functions of Several Variables Why the Method of Lagrange Multipliers Works THEOREM: (Method of Lagrange Multipliers) Suppose that (x, y) f (x, y) and (x, y) g (x, y) are differentiable functions. Let c be a constant. If f has an extreme value at a point P’ on the constraint curve g (x, y) = c then either g (P’) = 0 or there is a constant l such that f (P’) = l g (P’) . EXAMPLE: Find the maximum and minimum values of the function f(x, y) = 2x2 −y2 on the ellipse x2 +2(y−1)2 = 2.

11.9 Lagrange Multipliers Chapter 11-Functions of Several Variables Quick Quiz 1. True or false: If f and g are differentiable functions of x and y, then an extreme value of f (x, y) subject to the constraint g (x, y) = c must occur at a point P0 for which f (P0) = l g (P0). 2. True or false: If two critical points arise in the solution of a constrained extremum problem, then a maximum occurs at one of the points and a minimum occurs at the other. 3. Maximize, if possible, x2 + y2 subject to the constraint x + 2y = 5. 4. Minimize, if possible, x2 + y2 subject to the constraint Calculus, 2ed, by Blank & Krantz, Copyright 2011 by John Wiley & Sons, Inc, All Rights Reserved
