Let \(x\) and \(y\) be real numbers such that \(x^2+y^2=1\) .Prove that \[\dfrac{1}{1+x^2}+ \dfrac{1}{1+y^2} + \dfrac{1}{1+xy} \geq \frac{3}{1+(\dfrac{x+y}{2})^2}\]

Please help me this as soon as possible.Thanks!

Great! A solution through classical inequalities should be better.Log in to reply

I Prefer Trigonometry . Also i tried to use cauchy, titu but couldn't succeed therefore i switched to trigonometric substitutionLog in to reply

Looks like an application of Cauchy's/Titu's – Sharky Kesa · 9 months, 1 week ago

Are you sure the problem is correct, because x=0.5 and y=\(-0.5\) are not satisfying the condition. – Harsh Shrivastava · 9 months, 1 week ago

They are not satisfying first condition only.Log in to reply

First I would like to prove the following: \(\dfrac{1}{1+x^2} + \dfrac{1}{1+y^2} \geq \dfrac{2}{1+{\frac{(x+y)}{2}}^{2}} \dots (1) \) for \( \dfrac{1}{4} \leq xy \leq \dfrac{1}{2} \)

\( \dfrac{2 + x^2 + y^2}{1 + x^2 + y^2 + {x}^{2}{y}^{2}} \geq \dfrac{2}{1 + \frac{1+2xy}{4}} \)

\( \dfrac{3}{2+{x}^{2}{y}^{2}} \geq \dfrac{2}{\frac{5}{4} + \frac{xy}{2}} \)

\( 8{xy}^{2} -6xy +1 \leq 0 \)

This is true for \( \frac{1}{4} \leq xy \leq \frac{1}{2} \). Thus it has been proved.

\( \dfrac{1}{1+xy} \geq \dfrac{1}{1+{\frac{(x+y)}{4}}^{2}} \dots (2) \) (trivial)

Now add (1) and (2).Thus the result is proved for \( \dfrac{1}{4} \leq xy \leq \dfrac{1}{2} \).

What remains (\( 0 \leq xy \leq \frac{1}{4} \)) is simple.

The minimum value of the L.H.S in this interval is \( \dfrac{16}{11} + \dfrac{5}{4} \). The maximum value of the R.H.S is \( \dfrac{12}{5} \).

This proves the result for \( 0 \leq xy \leq \dfrac{1}{2} \). – Rohit Kumar · 9 months ago

But Last year KVPY Math and chem were quite easy. Bio was a nightmare(atleast for me)

My physics didn't went that well as it had some problems from optics which wasn't taught at that point of time.

But yeah if you are appearing for NSEA Then do master Gravitation!!.

For KVPY Do study current electricity , optics in physics .

Hydrocarbons in chemistry and basics taught in class 10th (Mensuration , Volume and surface area , Elementary Number theory) that will be enought

And Yeah Geometry is also important.

All the best! :) – Prakhar Bindal · 9 months ago

Any further tips?

Thanks. – Harsh Shrivastava · 9 months ago

Log in to reply

chem is easy but they ask some questions of organic chemistry which i suppose is there in phase-3.

Studying NCERT Will be enough for that

physics will be easy of the topics you have been taught.

All the best! – Prakhar Bindal · 9 months ago
