Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2if x >0, then:\[x+\frac{1}{x}\ge2\]you can use this to show the desired inequality.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So \[(a+b+c)(\frac{1}{a}+\frac{1}{b}+\frac{1}{c})=3+(\frac{a}{b}+\frac{b}{a})+(\frac{a}{c}+\frac{c}{a})+(\frac{c}{b}+\frac{b}{c})\]Since a,b,c are all positive, the fractions are all positive. That inequality i posted applies to all three parenthesis.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2if\[x=\frac{a}{b}\]then\[\frac{a}{b}+\frac{b}{a}=x+\frac{1}{x}\]which is greater than 2. Similarly for the other guys.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2hmn you have a right solution there but.... I did like this: The three numbers are like this... \(a,b,c\) \(AM \ge GM\) \(\large{\frac{(a+b+c)}{3} \ge (abc)^{\frac{1}{3}}}\) 1) If three numbers are .. \(\large{\frac{1}{a}. \frac{1}{b}, \frac{1}{c}}\) \(AM\ge GM\) \(\large{\frac{\frac{1}{a}+\frac{1}{b}+\frac{1}{c}}{3} \ge (\frac{1}{abc})^{(\frac{1}{3})}}\)2) Multiply 1) and 2) \[\large{\frac{a+b+c}{3} \times \frac{\frac{1}{a}+\frac{1}{b}+\frac{1}{c}}{3} \ge (abc)^{\frac{1}{3}} \times (\frac{1}{abc})^{\frac{1}{3}}}\] \[\large{(a+b+c)(\frac{1}{a}+\frac{1}{b}+\frac{1}{c}) \ge 9}\]
