Use the method of Lagrange multipliers to find the min value of: subject to the constraint Here's what I have so far: and now... I don't know how to isolate for x or y.

I don't know how to isolate for x or y. I'll pick it up at this point (**). From these you have subject to . From the first you have and from the second noting that cannot both happen due to the constraint. If (from the constaint) or (from the constaint) Now choose the one that give the min.

I don't know how to isolate for x or y. On a side note, the step (**) is ok provided that so this would have to be considered as a special case.
