I Values of Lagrange multipliers when adding new constraints

  1. Oct 31, 2017 #1
    Say we have a Lagrange function with one multiplier a times a constrain. I minimize and solve the system to find a. I now add another constrain to the same system multiplied by the constant b. Is the value of a the same or can it change?

    No it is not the same.
