Let x,y, and z be positive real numbers such that $$\dfrac{1}{x^4} + \dfrac{1}{y^4} + \dfrac{1}{z^4}$$ = 1.
Find the minimum value of $$\dfrac{x^4 y^4 + x^4 z^4 + y^4 z^4}{x^3 y^2 z^3}$$.

1.  $$x^4 y^4 + x^4 z^4 + y^4 z^4 = \ ?$$

$$\begin{array}{|rcll|} \hline \dfrac{1}{x^4} + \dfrac{1}{y^4} + \dfrac{1}{z^4} &=& \dfrac{x^4 y^4 + x^4 z^4 + y^4 z^4}{x^4 y^4 z^4} \\\\ 1 &=& \dfrac{x^4 y^4 + x^4 z^4 + y^4 z^4}{x^4 y^4 z^4} \\\\ \mathbf{x^4 y^4 + x^4 z^4 + y^4 z^4} &=& \mathbf{ x^4 y^4 z^4 } \\ \hline \end{array}$$

2. rearrange $$\dfrac{x^4 y^4 + x^4 z^4 + y^4 z^4}{x^3 y^2 z^3}$$

$$\begin{array}{|rcll|} \hline \dfrac{x^4 y^4 + x^4 z^4 + y^4 z^4}{x^3 y^2 z^3} &=& \dfrac{x^4 y^4 z^4 } {x^3 y^2 z^3} \\\\ \mathbf{\dfrac{x^4 y^4 + x^4 z^4 + y^4 z^4}{x^3 y^2 z^3} } &=& \mathbf{x y^2 z} \\ \hline \end{array}$$

Lagrange Multipliers

$$\begin{array}{|rcll|} \hline g(x,y,z) &=& \dfrac{1}{x^4} + \dfrac{1}{y^4} + \dfrac{1}{z^4} - 1 = 0 \\\\ f(x,y,z) &=& xy^2z \rightarrow \text{MIN.} \\\\ L(x,y,z,\lambda) &=& \underbrace{xy^2z}_{f(x,y,z)} + \lambda \left( \underbrace{\dfrac{1}{x^4} + \dfrac{1}{y^4} + \dfrac{1}{z^4} - 1 }_{g(x,y,z)}\right) \\\\ \hline \frac{\partial L(x,y,z,\lambda)}{\partial x} &=& y^2z-\dfrac{4}{x^5} \lambda \\\\ \frac{\partial L(x,y,z,\lambda)}{\partial y} &=& 2xyz-\dfrac{4}{y^5} \lambda \\\\ \frac{\partial L(x,y,z,\lambda)}{\partial z} &=& xy^2-\dfrac{4}{z^5} \lambda \\\\ \frac{\partial L(x,y,z,\lambda)}{\partial \lambda} &=& 0+ \dfrac{1}{x^4} + \dfrac{1}{y^4} + \dfrac{1}{z^4}-1 \\ \hline \end{array}$$
