Homework Help: Calculus

Posted by Salman on Friday, November 20, 2009 at 4:00am.

There is a point (P) on the graph of [x^2+y^2- 136 x + 12 y + 4560 = 0] and a point(Q) on the graph of
[(y + 6)^2 = x^3 - 116 x^2 - 417 x + 267460] such that the distance between them is as small as possible.

To solve this problem, we let ((x,y) be the coordinates of the point Q. Then we need to minimize the following function of (x) and (y): What will be the equation containing x and y after minimization has occured?
