What is the minimum value of the expression \(2x^2+3y^2+8x-24y+62\) for real x and y?

f (x, y)  = 2x^2  + 3y^2 + 8x - 24y +62

 

Take partial derivatives in x and y and set these to 0

 

fx   = 4x + 8  = 0    →  x  = -2

fy = 6y - 24  = 0     → y  = 4

 

As WolframAlpha shows....(-2,4)  is the min for this function.....and the min value  = 6
