The result follows immediately from Muirhead: $$(4,0,0)\succ \left(\dfrac{3}{2},\dfrac{3}{2},1\right)$$ · 2 years, 8 months ago

Except it is not given that $$x,y,z>0$$ and Muirhead's inequality holds for positive reals. · 2 years, 8 months ago

Are $$x,y,z$$ positive reals or just reals? (the same question for some of the other problems. You should provide the given restrictions on $$x,y,z$$ since otherwise we're not quite sure what they are). · 2 years, 8 months ago
