Considering Cobb-Douglas function in three variables as an explicit form of production function, in this paper an attempt has been made to maximize an output subject to a budget constraint, using Lagrange multipliers technique, as well as necessary and sufficient conditions for optimal value have been applied. We gave interpretation of Lagrange multiplier in this specific illustration, showing its positive value, and examined the behavior of the agency.
