Abstract

The first proof of the Lagrange multiplier rule is given that requires essentially no effort: it is elementary and it requires no technical arguments. Moreover it is explained that the power of the rule lies in the reversal of the natural order of the two tasks, elimination and differentiation (and not in the use of multipliers).
