Hey li00512.

Have you been taught multivariable calculus and Lagrange multipliers? There may be a simpler solution, but this a systematic approach for optimization problems. - Mar 22nd 2013, 05:33 AMli00512Re: Help!! find the minimum
hi, chiro.

I want to find a simpler way to solve this problem.

and I just realized that I mistyped the problem.

sorry, it should be "find the minimum of a2+b2+c2+d2+ac+bd".
