I have been understanding these so far but this one it(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); saysis wrong, but I cant figure out why.

"Find the absolute maximum and absolute minimum of the function f(x,y) = xy - 5 y - 25 x + 125 on the region on or above y = x^2 and on or below y = 29."

I get the absolute max to be =148.15 at (-5/3,25/9), which is correct.

I get the absolute min to be =0 at (5,25), which is wrong, but I cant find any more points of interest, as far as I can see 0 at (5,25) is right :grumpy:

If you have any clues/suggestions, I would greatly appreciate it
