Let f(x,y)= -2x^2-2xy+y^2+2 Use Lagrange multipliers to find the minimum of f subject to the constraint 4x-y = 6

∂F / ∂x =.....................
i got -4x-2y+2y but i coming out as wrong what am i missing
∂F/ ∂Y= ................

The function f achieves its minimum, subject to the given constraint, where
x =
y =
λ=
f =
thank you

Set up your Lagrangean with the equality constraints.

This is a nonlinear program with equality constraints and thus it should be straightforward.
