Find the absolute extrema of $f(x,y) = x^2  xy + y^2$ on $x + y \leq 1$.
Hello. I am confused about how to solve the following Lagrange multiplier problem. It involves in inequality in the constraint so I began by finding the extrema within that domain by simply setting the first derivatives of f to 0, and finding that there is an extremum at (0, 0). However, the absolute values in the constraint confuse me when I try to use Lagrange multipliers. Can someone help me?
