# Maximizing problem with an inequality constraint.

 P: 6 Hello I have a worked example where I have to maximize a function with an inequality constraint. The problem is worked out below. I know how to get the kuhn-tucker conditions in the first step. I also understand how the first two possibilities (i) and (ii) are ruled out. In the third one the value of $\lambda$ is 2. But how did the problem work out the value of and x2 to be 10? Thanks.
