Inequality Help! Urgent!9pq < 6pq +6(1p)(1q). Implying that 3pq/(1p)(1q) < (less than or equal to) 2 #2 20121112 03:17:08
Re: Inequality Help! Urgent!Hi BarandaMan; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #3 20121112 03:21:40
Re: Inequality Help! Urgent!Yes I do! That is what the answer says but i do not understand how it gets past the 'implies' after rearranging #4 20121112 03:36:11
Re: Inequality Help! Urgent!Hi; Subtract 6pq from both sides. Divide both sides by 3. Divide both sides by (1p)(1q) provided that p,q are both less than 1. I do not know where the 3 comes from in your question. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it.

Re: Inequality Help! Urgent!I did the question from a book, and in the back ith as the answers. The first line of my original post shows what the answer is in the textbook. It must be wrong, I will write a letter. It is simple inequality I thought... must be printing error. #8 20121112 04:39:48
Re: Inequality Help! Urgent!I would think it is a typo. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.
