Hello,
I have a problem with with the examples for using the 
Minimize function given in the documentation on wolfram.com:

When trying:
        
Minimize[ax^2+bx+c,x]

I receive the following error:

Minimize::objv:
The objective function c+bx+ax^2 contains a nonconstant 
expression c independent of variables (x).

Is there something wrong with the command or the 
documentation?

Thanks.
