This is a problem from RMO 2015 Mumbai Region based on inequality.
Problem: RMO 2015 Mumbai Region
Let x, y, z be real numbers such that . Prove that
Note that .
According to the given condition .
Adding 2(x+y+z) + 1 to both sides,
We wish to show
Replacing 2xyz by we have
(this is what we need to show).
Therefore we need to show
This is true by Cauchy Schwarz Inequality.
