Question: Test optimization

Dear all

I solve an optimization problem ( minimization or maximization) using lagrangeMultiplier theorem 

The objective function is f:=(x,y,z) =x*y+y*z;

The constraints are: x*y=1  and y^2+z^2=1;

Using a numerical method I get the follwing point 

x = 1.41421356249703, y = .707106781124551, z = .707106781248575

How can I confirm that this point is a minumum or maximum

Maybe I must use Hessian matrix or something else.

Which condition must be introduced to know the type ( maximum or minumum) this point.

Many thanks for your help
