```i want to maximize the equation below:

12La*T + (0.12x + 5 y)*((2 (42 x + 4018 y - 7 x y))/(
9 x y) - (6 x + 574 y - x y)^2/(2025 x^2 y^2))

it has 4 variables x, y, La, T. I want the maximization for the x
variable only. In other words i want to find a relation between x and
the other variables that maximizes the whole equation. the
restrictions are that 80<x<250 and y==3.5 || y==2

i wrote the command below  in mathematica but nothing:

Maximize[{12La*T + (0.12x + 5y)*((2 (42 x + 4018 y - 7 x y))/(
9xy) - (6x + 574y - x*y)^2/(2025 x^2 y^2)),
x < 250 && x > 80, y == 3.5 || y == 2}, {x}]

i dont know why. i dont think that it is the number of variables that
causes the problem...

thank you very much
