minimum value of when subjected to and satisfies the condition. but I'm not able to show all three at a time I want someone to explain me the problem.

Because of the cyclic symmetry of the variables, the minimum is found when: You will easily find this is true using Lagrange multipliers.

I can see , and has similar role, nothing happens if we interchange their position. could u please explain me in simple words.

what I did is, f = x + y + z . . . . (i) x + y + z  1 = 0 . . . . (ii) xyz + 1 = 0 . . . . (iii) we know, x + y + z = ( x + y + z)  2xy  2yz  2xz f = 1  2xy  2yz  2xz substituting value of "z" from equation (iii) f = 1  2xy + 2/x + 2/y . . . . (vi) partially differentiating equation (vi) w.r.t x and y and equation the results with zero, yx =  1 . . . . (v) xy =  1 . . . . (vi) combining (v) and (vi) yx  xy = 0 xy ( x  y ) = 0 thus, x = y why am i getting x = y if x = y, I get only (1, 1, 1) and don't get other point. is the process I followed incorrect ?

[color=#800040]Mark[/color] there are two conditions, x + y + z  1 = 0 and xyz + 1 = 0 I don't know latex properly, so may b second condition is not displayed properly.

I assumed that if you are studying optimization with constraints, then you are familiar with Lagrange multipliers. I simply do not have the patience with the quirky rendering of here to attempt a tutorial on the subject.
