# Inequality 6(Christos Patilas)

Problem:

Let $\displaystyle x,y,z\in (0,+\infty)\wedge n\in \mathbb{N}$. Prove that

$\displaystyle (x^{n+3}-x^n+3)(y^{n+3}-y^n+3)(z^{n+3}-z^n+3)\geq (x+y+z)^3$.

Solution:

We will prove that

$\displaystyle \sum_{cyc}(x^{n+3}-x^n+3)\geq \sum_{cyc}(x^3+2)$.

Indeed, if we bring everything in the left hand side we get that

$\displaystyle \sum_{cyc}(x^n-1)(x^3-1)\geq 0$,

which is obviously true.

So, it remains to prove that

$\displaystyle \prod_{cyc}(x^3+1+1)\geq (x+y+z)^3$,

which is a direct conclusion of Holder’s inequality, Q.E.D.
