Maximization using Lagrange Multipliers

Recommended Posts

You got four equations with four unknowns. Try to substitute one into another to eliminate the unknowns one by one.

BTW, notice that your x, y, z in f() and in g() are not exactly the same. You'll need to fix this mistake to get the answer correctly.

"f(x,y,z) = volume of the rectangular paralelpiped=x*y*z where x=length(l}, y=width(w), z=height(h) of rectangular parallelpiped"


x,y,z is given to you as terms that define the ellipsoid.

How about you try to define the volume.. centered.. within what is given -- the ellipsoid?
