1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Find the point on the curve y = x2 that is closest to the point (0, b). 2. Relevant equations Lagrange multipliers 3. The attempt at a solution L(x,y,λ) = x2 + (y-b)2 - λ(x2-y) Lx = 2x - 2λx = 0 Ly = 2y - 2b + λ = 0 Lλ = x2 - y = 0 Then solve for x and y? Is this right?
