Re: Maximum value
Look at the 'integer solutions' section of:^2+%2B+y^2+%2B+z^2+%3D+6+and+x%2By%2Bz%3D0

Calculate the value of the expression for each set of solutions
The maximum value is your answer :D

The variables are not required to be integers! The expression is to be maximized, not minimized.

The maximum seems to be 6, achieved when x, y and z are the zeros of r - 3r + 1.
