# Inequality Problem

Suppose $$a,b,c$$ be 3 positive reals such that

$$a+b+c≥\frac{a}{b}+\frac{b}{c}+\frac{c}{a}$$

Show that $$\frac{a^{3}c}{b(c+a)}+\frac{b^{3}a}{c(a+b)}+\frac{c^{3}b}{a(b+c)}≥\frac{3}{2}$$.

I cannot still solve this problem.Please,someone help me .

Sort by:

$\displaystyle 2(a+b+c)\left( \frac{a}{b} +\frac{b}{c} +\frac{c}{a} \right) \left( \sum_{\text{cyc}}\frac{a^3c}{b(c+a)} \right)$

$\displaystyle \stackrel{\text{Hölder}}\ge (a+b+c)^3\stackrel{\text{?}}\ge 3(a+b+c)\left( \frac{a}{b} +\frac{b}{c} +\frac{c}{a} \right)$

$\displaystyle 3\left( \frac{a}{b} +\frac{b}{c} +\frac{c}{a} \right)\le 3(a+b+c)\stackrel{\text{?}}\le (a+b+c)^2$

$\displaystyle a+b+c\ge \frac{a}{b} +\frac{b}{c} +\frac{c}{a}\stackrel{\text{AM-GM}}\ge 3.\:\:\square$ · 2 years, 11 months ago

i think you should try to use AM-GM inequality · 2 years, 11 months ago

I have tried...but it was of no use · 2 years, 11 months ago
