I want to ask also whether this proof is valid.

Given \(a,b,c\) positive real and different, prove that \[2(a^3+b^3+c^3)>bc(b+c) + ca(c+a) +ab(a+b)\]

I proved it using this inequality \[(a+b)(a-b)^2 +(b+c)(b-c)^2 +(c+a)(c-a)^2 >0\]

Since \[(a+b)(a-b)^2>0\] and etc.

Is that valid? Thank you

TopNewestWhat makes you think that it is valid or invalid? Do you have any argument for either case? Do you have any concerns about either possibility?

I do have a concern about this arguments \[(a+b)(a-b)^2 \geq0\] since \(a+b\geq 0\) and \((a-b)^2 \geq 0\) I did it by backwards and proof it using the arguments I have. Or is there any other way how to proof that problem?

What you have shown is that both of these terms are non-negative, and so when we multiply them they are still non-negative. This proof is valid.

A better way of writing up inequality solutions, is to do it in reverse from how you solved it. Namely:

This way, all that we need is the forward implications, instead of the backwards ones. It now becomes much clearer how to arrive at the solution.
