This problem was given in my calc class during the semester,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

"Find the lowest point on the intersection of the sphere x^2+y^2 +z^2 = 30 and the cone 2*x^2 +y^2 = c^2". I dont know how to solve this problem with lagrange multipliers.

How is it done?

Thanks!
