Arithmetic Mean-Geometric Mean Inequality

This week, we learn about the Arithmetic Mean-Geometric Mean Inequality, which relates the arithmetic mean and geometric mean of non-negative real values.

How would you use AM-GM to solve the following?

  1. Given that \(a, b\) and \(c\) are positive numbers such that \(abc=1\), show that \[ \frac{a}{b} + \frac{b}{c} + \frac{c}{a} \geq a+b+c. \]

  2. Share a problem which uses the AM-GM technique.
