 Maximum Value (Posted on 2002-06-19)
We have :
```      x^2+xy+y^2=3 and
y^2+yz+z^2=16
A=xy+yz+zx```
Find the maximum value of A. Find x, y and z when A=max value.

Its nice to see i am not alone in tackling this problem.

With how bad the equations get, I was looking to find any solution first.
x=2/sqrt(31) y=4/sqrt(31) z=7/sqrt(31) A=8 is the only solution I have so far, but I restricted the values to positive integers to help get a handle on this thing.
