This problem appeared in the pre RMO test in my school How shall we solve this -

PROVE THAT

\(\frac{a^{2} +1}{b+c} +\frac{b^{2} +1}{a+c} +\frac{c^{2} +1}{b+a}\) >3 OR =3

TopNewestWithout loss of generality, Take a>b>c.

a^{2} + 1 > 2

a - Similarly for all So I substitute 2a, 2b, 2c in the numerators The new sum acquired is lower than the original.Now take 2 common and send it to the other side of the equation

This now reduces to Nesbitt's Inequality. Nesbitt's Inequality.

Proved.

[By the way even I am preparing for RMO, I think these inequalities are basic- -Nesbitt's Inequality -RMS>AM>GM>HM -Chebycheff Inequality -Rearrangement Inequality -Triangle Inequality ]
