hopefully u get correct result

ie
Correct Ans:
X = -7, Y = 21, Lambda = 81

lucky zafar brother....kindly tell how you find the valueof x,y and λ in your following method,actually i dont know the method plz

Solution: X = 7, Y = 7, and λ = 371

Hello #lucky Zafar
Apka solution bilkul sahi hai mene bhi asi hi kara hai...

par last mein λ = 371 ye wrong hai...

∂L/ ∂Y = – X – 6Y + 200 - λ = 0 2 is mein X & Y ki value dale gi or answer 151 aye ga..

notes k page 14 pe dekhlo bilkul ase hi hoa hai

Is ka second part kara hai ?

dear ap ka ya wrong ha please correct it
– 5X +X + 5Y -140
correct ya ha
– 5X + 5Y -140
hopefully u get correct result
ie
Correct Ans:
X = -7, Y = 21, Lambda = 81

bhai apne notes dekhy hai ? page 14 pe ??

g ap ko mistake bati to ha plz check it or send me whattapp no me raf ap ko send kr data hun then discuse kr lain gy

@Faraz: i think you are subtracting equation 1 from equation 2.
dear please note: "Subtract equation 2 from equation 1" to get Equation 4
in this way Signs of equation 2 will change due to the subtraction.
Then you will get: -5X+5Y-140=0

Please confirm.

dear Mohammad Asif plz tell me how to calculate value of x & y...?

ap whatsapp ka no do ya mailing address me ruf work send kr data hun ap ko

dear sarfraz...if X = -7, Y = 21 then by putting these values in ∂L/ ∂Y = – X – 6Y + 200 - λ , we get
λ= 81.............plz calculate carefully otherwise u will lose mks

Thanks all specially faraz,asif,Jv and lucky zafar

faraz and asif.....how we will interpret the final question as asked by the examiner.....any idea?
