I've been working on optimization problems and have been having problems with this one. The only thing that I'm confused about is what's going on when I find the derivative of the function:
Also, in case it matters,
and
, but in the example, the derivative is found with respect to the variables rather than their respective values.
My attempt:
From this point, I could do stuff like factor out a
, but it looks like mine won't be very easy to solve for zero.
This is what the derivative is supposed to be, which is easier to solve for zero:
What am I doing incorrectly?
Thanks!
