To find the critical points of ( f(x,y) = \sqrt{5 - 2x^2 - 3y} ), we first need to find the partial derivatives with respect to ( x ) and ( y ) and then solve for where they are simultaneously equal to zero.

Taking the partial derivatives:

[ \frac{\partial f}{\partial x} = \frac{-4x}{\sqrt{5 - 2x^2 - 3y}} ] [ \frac{\partial f}{\partial y} = \frac{-3}{2\sqrt{5 - 2x^2 - 3y}} ]

Setting both partial derivatives equal to zero:

[ \frac{-4x}{\sqrt{5 - 2x^2 - 3y}} = 0 ] [ \frac{-3}{2\sqrt{5 - 2x^2 - 3y}} = 0 ]

Solving these equations yields:

[ x = 0 ] [ y = \frac{5}{3} ]

To determine the nature of the critical point, we need to evaluate the second partial derivatives and the discriminant of the Hessian matrix.

The second partial derivatives are:

[ \frac{\partial^2 f}{\partial x^2} = \frac{-4(5 - 2x^2 - 3y) + 8x^2}{2(5 - 2x^2 - 3y)^{3/2}} ] [ \frac{\partial^2 f}{\partial y^2} = \frac{9}{4(5 - 2x^2 - 3y)^{3/2}} ] [ \frac{\partial^2 f}{\partial x \partial y} = 0 ]

Evaluating these at the critical point ( (0, 5/3) ) gives:

[ \frac{\partial^2 f}{\partial x^2} = \frac{10}{9\sqrt{5}} > 0 ] [ \frac{\partial^2 f}{\partial y^2} = \frac{9}{10\sqrt{5}} > 0 ]

Since both second partial derivatives are positive, the Hessian matrix is positive definite, indicating that the critical point is a local minimum. Therefore, the critical point ( (0, 5/3) ) is a minimum point.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
