Consider a triangle \(ABC\) with area \(\Delta\). Let \(x = r_1 \sec \left( \dfrac A2 \right),y= r_2 \sec \left( \dfrac B2 \right)\) and \(z = r_3\sec \left( \dfrac C2 \right) \), where \(r_1,r_2\) and \(r_3\) are the radii of the excircles of the triangle \(ABC\).

Find the infimum of the function \(f(x,y,z) = \dfrac{xyz(x+y+z)}{\Delta^2} \).

The answer is \(\boxed{16}\). Its just equilateral \(\Delta\).But I need a proof for it.Log in to reply

Can @Otto Bretscher , @Pi Han Goh , @Satyajit Mohanty , @Sandeep Bhardwaj , or anybody else help me out with this. I'm not very good at inequalities, but I tried AM-GM , but its not helping much. – Vignesh S · 5 months, 2 weeks ago
