TopNewest@Calvin Lin Please help me out!

I was reading the wiki On AM - GM Inequality .In it I found out that there was a proof which said that it requires a bit of combinatorics . In the last bit of the proof , it said

\(k > m_g > 0 \Rightarrow m_g \in {(0 , k)}\)

\(k \geq m_a > 0 \Rightarrow m_a \in {(0 , k]}\).

From these how does it follow that \(m_a \geq m_g\) ? – Ankit Kumar Jain · 2 months ago

I don't know what \(k, m_a\) and \(m_g\) represents. So I can't help you with that...Log in to reply

Sir \(m_a\) is the arithmetic mean and \(m_g\) is geometric mean and \(k\) is some constant.Log in to reply

@Calvin Lin Sir , recently I posted two questions ..the problem name changed automatically.

Like I named the problem 'Strange' , it changed to 'A geometry problem by Ankit Kumar Jain. – Ankit Kumar Jain · 2 months, 1 week ago
