Hey guys im very confused here.. I have no idea how to do this! I need to find the max/mins of this equation and I get lost after finding the partials.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex] f(x,y) = xy(1 - x - y) \\ [/tex]

[tex] f_x (x,y) = y - 2xy - y^2 \\ [/tex]

[tex] f_y (x,y) = x - x^2 - 2xy \\ [/tex]

I know I'm suppose to kinda do what you do with single variables... but im getting lost with these multivariables... any help would be very much appreciated :)
