Hey guys, i need some help with this problem. It goes as follow: Find the global max and min valves of the fuction z=x^2+2y^2 on the circle x^2+y^2=1. Ok and here is what i have done. I found the derivites and have done (K is the lagrange constant)(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

2x=2xK K=1

4y=2yK K=2

Then i set them equal and get 1=2? I know this is not right, but my teacher said do it by lagrange multipliers, so any help is appreciated. Thanks.
