1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data http://img121.imageshack.us/img121/4601/54510849.png [Broken] 3. The attempt at a solution I separated the partial derivatives. However I do not know how to solve a linear function with a raised power. I know that I will have to solve for (0,0) and another answer. Yet, I just do not know how to solve for that power. Technically I can graph the functions but I cannot use a calculator in my clac class. If anyone can help me out that would be great.
