    Lagrange Multiplier problem

    Can someone explain me step by step how to solve this problem

    Minimize

    with constraint


    Find Partial Derivatives

    Fx
    Fy
    FLambda

    F acheives its minimum at
    x=

    F(x,y,\lambda)=-9x^2-2xy+y^2+1-\lambda(6x-y-12)

    From here just take the partials and solve the sytem of equations.
