The problem of optimization, just as in the single variable case, involves maximizing or minimizing some function subject to a set of constraints. For ease of visualization we are going to work in R3 with two constraint equations, but the ideas and methods are identical for higher dimensions and larger constraint sets. Formal proofs of the method of Lagrange multipliers abound. What we present here is a geometric picture and geometric explanation of the procedure.
