Please help me?? I'm having great difficulty solving this question.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Find all relative extrema of x^2y^2 subject to the constraint 4x^2+y^2=8. Do this in two ways:

a)Use the constraint to eliminate a variable

b)Use the method of Lagrange multipliers.

Your help will be greatly appreciated.
