Question: How do I do optimization

Hi all

 

I am trying to maximize a function f(x,y,z,w) in terms of x. (Only x is treated as a variable, and the others are treated as parameters).

However, all I know is that y,z,w they are parameters and they are non-negative. I have already tried with the "optmization help page" from maplesoft's website, and it looks like it will search the range of x,y,z,w, and it will return numerical values at which this function is maximized. 

 

 

However, what I want is instead a close-form solution of x=g(y,z,w) that will maximize the function.   In other words, I would like to keep the parameter in symbolic forms. 

 

Can Maple do that?
