1. ## Finding the absolute maximum and minimum of a function on a closed region

The question posed is: Find the absolute maximum and minimum of
on the closed region bounded by the lines
.

I know how to use the Lagrange multiplier method, but I'm stumped on this one. Even a nudge in the right direction will be greatly appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Giest.

EDIT:

It seems that I forgot how to do basic calculus for a short while. I figured it out--eventually.
