Find all positive real numbers \(a\), \(b\) and \(c\) that satisfy the conditions:

\[a+b+c=75 \\ abc=2013 \\ a\leq3 \\ c\geq61\]

Give proof. You can write all families of positive real solutions.

Note that \(a,b\) and \(c\) might not necessarily be integers.

TopNewestSince \(a\le 3\), \(b+c\le 72\) Similarly \(a+b\ge 14\).From this we get, \(14-a\le b\le 72-c\) again since \(a\le 3\) and \(c \ge 61\) we get \(11 \le b\le 11\) implies that \(b=11\). Now remains \(a+c=64\) and \(ac=183\) which on solving gives \(a=3,c=61\) @Sharky Kesa Please see if I am geting wrong:) – Siddharth Singh · 1 year, 3 months ago

Yup I have a pretty much same proof!Log in to reply

realsolutions? Where is your proof? You only wrote 1 integral solution. – Sharky Kesa · 1 year, 4 months agoLog in to reply

@Sharky This can be proved to be the only real solution!Log in to reply
