ok this is just an example so you can see where im having problems with these(it isnt hw)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

i need to find the optimum values of X and Y

U= XY

m= Psuby(Y) + Psubx(X)

the first order conditions are

Y +u*Psubx

X+ u*PsubY

m= Psuby(Y) + Psubx(X)

now , where im having problems is how do i find the optimum values from that. I know you are supposed to plug the FOC in but i cant get the answer my book shows me. could somebody walk me through that part?
