Could someone walk me through how to maximize this 2-variable function wrt z?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I know the set of solutions will form a circle around the point (2,3). How do I go about finding the set of maxima that form this circle/the equation of this circle?

(I am a complete math novice)!

Thanks
