In many cases, we need to make use of the properties of logarithm as well. Please remember that if you see “ln” symbol, it is called natural log and it has the base…

Step(1) Formulate the objective function. Step(2) Reduce the objective function to One variable. Step(3) Take the derivative of the function and find the critical value(s). Step(4) Find the local max or min by either First derivative…
