Using the wikipwdia notation:
f(x,y)-function that you want to maximize (area of the triangle)
g(x,y)- function that is your "bond" (perimeter) written in equation form g(x,y)=0
L ( x , y , λ ) = f ( x , y ) - λ g ( x , y )
Maximaze L ( x , y , λ ) :
1. L x = 0
2. L y = 0
3. L λ = 0
express x , y or λ end put it in the 3. equation

This might be trivial but I am struggling to justify the following simplification.from:
h ( x + d ) h ( x ) j G j f ( x ) d j + γ j G | d j |
to:
h ( x + d ) h ( x ) max j G | j f ( x ) | j G | d j | + γ j G | d j |

Specifically, why is there a negative in front of the maximization?

Note:
I can get behind the fact that
j G j f ( x ) d j max j G | j f ( x ) | j G | d j |
provided the jacobian is nonnegative element-wise. But then why add the negative sign?

Let f(x)=x36x215x+23
a) Perform a full sign analysis on f(x): find its zeroes, and determine its sign on each interval.
b) Use the information in (2) to determine intervals of concave up / concave down for f.
c) Find the coordinates (x, y) of the inflection point(s) of f.
d) Find the absolute maximum and minimum values of f on the interval [0, 7]. Justify your answer with appropriate calculus work.
