Hey Guys I hope All is fine ? Please I need Helping getting the points critiques And if it's minimum or maximum
Function : f(x;y) = xlny-ylnx
Thanks

What are your thoughts?
Please share your work with us ...even if you know it is wrong.
If you are stuck at the beginning tell us and we'll start with the definitions.

“... mathematics is only the art of saying the same thing in different words” - B. Russell
f(x,y)=xlog(y)−ylog(x)
we'll do it the long way first and then use a shortcut
∂f∂x=log(y)−yx
∂f∂y=xy−log(x)
set these both equal to zero and solve
log(y)=yx
log(x)=xy
The only solution to this is x=y=e
The shortcut is knowing that in symmetric expressions like this extrema always occur when y=x
If we set y=x we can immediately see log(x)=xx=1
x=e
To characterize this critical point we first look at
D=fxxfyy−f2xy at the critical point
fxx=yx2
fyy=−xy2
fxy=1y−1x
D=fxxfyy−f2xy∣∣(x,y)=(e,e)=−(1y−1x)2−1xy∣∣∣(x,y)=(e,e)−1e2
D<0 and thus this critical point is a saddle point.
Do you perhaps mean, "This is what somebody else gave me in reply to another of my posts of this question, but he didn't give me everything I need for my hand-in homework, so you guys finish it for me"...?
How about you at least go to the effort of telling us how your book defines "the points critiques". Thank you!
I'm a bit late to the thread it seems, but this exact question was also posted right here on this forum. If the original poster is actually interested in doing work for themselves, the hints provided there will hopefully be of some use.
