Re: Maximize


Hi,

a) you mean Equal[] instead of Set[]

Maximize[{g + (1 - g)*x - (g/2)*x^2 - (g/2)*v,
   x == (a/c) + sqrt ((d/c)*(v - 1/c))}, x]

b) that is nonsense because you have one equation
    for x, you can insert this into your objective
    function and you get a constant with respect to
    x. So there is nothing to minimize

Regards
