f(a, b) = (a-b)^{2}+(\frac{a^{2}}{20}-\sqrt{(17-b).(b-13)})^{2}
f(a, b) = a^{2} + \frac{a^{4}}{400}-2ab-\frac{a^{2}}{10}.\sqrt{(17-b).(b-13)}+ ((17-b).(b-13))13\leq b\leq 17
\frac{\partial f(a, b)}{\partial a} =2a + \frac{a^{3}}{100}-2b-\frac{a}{5}\sqrt{(17-b)(b-13)} = 0
From here, you will get the value of a in the form of b.
Put that value in the equation & you will get the equation in b.
Then differentiate the function w.r.t b & equate it to zero.
Calculate b from the equation & select appropriate from the value b/w 13 & 17 for maxima & minima.
Thanks & Regards
