Thanks everyone for 3K views on this blog!

I didn't expect it to blow up this much.

Keep viewing it, more interesting content is to come!

Prove for all positive reals $a,b,c$, $$\sum_{cyc} \frac{a}{\sqrt{3ab+bc}} \ge \frac 32.$$ I'll wait for comments and will post the solution in 2 days! EDIT - Well now that it's been 3 days (oops i forgot to post), I'll show my solution now. By Holder,$$\left( \sum_{cyc} \frac{a}{\sqrt{3ab+bc}} \right)^2 \left( \sum_{cyc} a(3ab+bc) \right) \ge (a+b+c)^3$$ So it suffices to show$$(a+b+c)^3 \ge \frac 94 \sum_{cyc} a(3ab+bc)$$ Expanding and cancelling terms, we wish to show$$f(a,b,c)=4\sum_{cyc} a^3 + 12\sum_{cyc} b^2a-15\sum_{cyc} a^2b-3abc\ge 0$$ Claim: $f(a,b,c) \le f(a+d, b+d, c+d)$ if $d>0$ Proof:$$f(a+d,b+d,c+d)-f(a,b,c) =d (4\sum_{cyc} 3a^2 + 12\sum_{cyc} (b^2+2ba) - 15\sum_{cyc} (a^2+2ba) - 3(ab+bc+ca)) $$ $$+d^2 (4\sum_{cyc} 3a + 12 \sum_{cyc} (2b+a) - 15\sum_{cyc} (2a+b) - 3(a+b+c)$$ The $d^2, d^3$ stuff cancel. So $f(a+d,b+d,c+d) - f(a,b,c) = \frac{9d}{2} \sum_{cyc} (a-b)^2 > 0$. Let $a=\min\{a,b,c\}$, then $f(a,a+b,a+c) \ge f(0,b,c)$. Let $x=\frac bc$, then

Wow! 3K views already?? You started this blog like a week ago and now it's literally on fire.

ReplyDeleteGreat job with your content. I love it!

I visit your blog every day :)

Thanks!

Hello! Thank you for making this blog! I have always been looking for the 'motivation' for solutions, but I never really found it anywhere, in any solutions. This blog has helped me so much ever since you started it. To be honest, I've never seen 3k views so fast in any blog. You legit started this blog 10 days ago. There is something special in your content that you are gaining views so rapidly. There is something special in your solutions, that make me go "Ohhh, that's how you think of it" without you even clearly stating the motivation. Your solutions are presented in such a natural way that even without writing out the motivation, I can understand how you are supposed to think of it on your own. This doesn't happen with me in other solutions.

ReplyDeleteI wish you the best of luck in your future endeavors!

I agree with the above comments.

ReplyDeleteI love the work you're doing.

Can't thank you enough for the wonderful solutions you post on this blog. It's helped me a lot.
