## anonymous 5 years ago i need to show that$\left|\frac{1}{a^2}-\frac{1}{b^2}\right|\leq\frac{2|a-b|}{k^3}$where $$a,b,k\in\mathbb{R}$$, $$|a|>k>0$$ and $$|b|>k>0$$. ive tried a few things, but im stuck. help!

- so what do you think from this ? the first term will be k2*I(b2-a2)/a2b2)I <= 2Ia-bI -k2*I(a-b)(a+b)I<=2Ia2b2*(a-b)I

i tried$\left|\frac{1}{a^2}-\frac{1}{b^2}\right|=\left|\frac{b^2-a^2}{(ab)^2}\right|=\frac{|a^2-b^2|}{(ab)^2}=\frac{|(a-b)(a+b)|}{(ab)^2}$
