Constrained minimum problem

  1. Apr 13, 2012 #1
    Hi,

    I need help with this problem;

    minimize x^3, subject to K= x-Ωπ

    so would the solution be

    K-Ωπ=x

    thanks!

    I don't understand your question. If K and [itex]\Omega[/itex] are constants, then x is given as a specific number. There is no question of "minimizing" anything!
