We're suppose to minimize f(x,y,z)=x^2+y^2+z^2 subject to 2x+y+2z=9.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I only ever remember learning how to do f(x,y) would it be the same equation? Thus, f(x,y,[tex]\lambda[/tex]) = f(x,y) + [tex]\lambda[/tex] g(x,y)? Meaning f(x,y,z,[tex]\lambda[/tex]) = x^2+y^2+z^2 + [tex]\lambda[/tex] (2x+y+2z-9) and then continue solving for each variable from there?

Any help?
