Let \( f: [0,\infty] \rightarrow \mathbb R\) be a non-decreasing continuous function. Show then that the inequality.

\[ \large (z-x) \int_y^z f(u) \, du \geq (z-y) \int_x^z f(u) \, du \]

holds for any \(0\leq x\leq y \leq z \).

Show that \( g(x) \) is increasing - and you're done.

Indeed, \( g'(x) = \dfrac{\int\limits_x ^z f(u)du - f(x)(z - x)}{(z - x)^2}\)

Now see that \( f(u) \geq f(x)\) \( \forall \) \( u \in [x, z] \).

This means, \( \int\limits_x ^z f(u)du \geq \int\limits_x ^z f(x)du = f(x)(z - x) \) and \(g'(x) \geq 0 \) – Ameya Daigavane · 5 months, 3 weeks ago

thanks sir sir what should be the approach while solving these types of problems.??Log in to reply

If \( g(x) \) was increasing, then we would have what we wanted - and I showed that. – Ameya Daigavane · 5 months, 3 weeks ago
