Is there a way to optimize (find global max and min) a function given a boundary (such as by a triangle x=0, y=0, y=x+3) on Wolfram Alpha?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I just need a way to verify if my answer is correct... They have a way to determine it if the boundary is just one "function" (equation), like a circle. But I don't know how to define it if I have some triangle defined by 3 separate functions.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Check where the first derivative is 0 or undefined to find the critical points and plug those and the end points into the function to find the max.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0^ Do you know how to combine that with asking Wolfram to optimize a function given that boundary?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I tried putting "on x=0,y=0,y=x+3" but it doesn't give a max or min... which seems fishy

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ohh wait I figured it out :) I had to say "on x>=0,y>=0,y<=x+3"
