Hi, I'm really stuck on this problem and I need some help??(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Here's the question:

The intersection of the elliptic paraboloid z=x^2+4y^2 and the right circular cylinder x^2+y^2=1. Use Lagrange multipliers to find the highest and lowest points on the curve of intersection.

Your help will be very much appreciated.
