FoolForMath

Just another super easy problem, Let \(x, y, z \in \mathbb{R}^+\) such that \(x +y +z =\sqrt{3} \) . Find the maximum value of \[ \frac x{\sqrt{x^2+1}} +\frac y{\sqrt{y^2+1}} +\frac z{\sqrt{z^2+1}} \]

    yeah I see it as there being two options, the boundaries of \(x+y+z=\sqrt3\) or the average where \(x=y=z=\frac{\sqrt3}3\) what kind of proof you want that this is the maximum I'm not sure; you could use calculus I would imagine
