    \[ \sum_{k=1}^{n}a_{k}^{2}+\left(\sum_{k=1}^n a_k\right)^2\] \[\left(\sum_{k=1}^n a\right)^2=\sum_{k=1}^n a^3\] So your question boils down to \[\sum_{k=1}^n a^2+ a^3=\sum_{k=1}^n a^2(a+1)\]

    Although that's not Cauchy Schwartz.

    I didn't realise that task has another assumption :\[\sum_{k=1}^{n}p_ka_k=1\]

    Sorry, I forgot that a1 does not necessarily equal 1, a2=2 etc. forget what I've told you so far.

    Or do you think a1=1, a2=2 etc in this problem?
