Cauchy-Schwartz Inequality problem

Mathematics Asked by In-finite on December 10, 2020

Let $a,$ $b,$ $c,$ $d,$ $e,$ $f$ be nonnegative real numbers.

(a) Prove that
$$(a^2 + b^2)^2 (c^4 + d^4)(e^4 + f^4) ge (ace + bdf)^4.$$

(b) Prove that
$$(a^2 + b^2)(c^2 + d^2)(e^2 + f^2) ge (ace + bdf)^2.$$

I’m not sure how I should start approaching both problems. I believe I should use Cauchy-Schwartz, but I’m not sure.
Any help would be appreciated! Thanks in advance.

These are both CS inequality applications, you should try yourself. Here is the first one:

  1. $(c^4+d^4)(e^4+f^4) geqslant (c^2e^2+d^2f^2)^2$
  2. $(a^2+b^2)(c^2e^2+d^2f^2) geqslant (ace+bdf)^2$

Now combine the two to get what you want.

For (a),
Just use Holder's Inequality.

For (b),
Expand $(a^2 + b^2) (c^2 + d^2) (e^2 + f^2) $. (It is equivalent to the LHS of my answer)
Expand $(ace + bdf)^2$. (It is equivalent to the RHS of my answer)
The problem is just proving $$ a^2 c^2 e^2 + a^2 c^2 f^2 + a^2 d^2 e^2 + a^2 d^2 f^2 + b^2 c^2 e^2 + b^2 c^2 f^2 + b^2 d^2 e^2 + b^2 d^2 f^2 ge a^2 c^2 e^2 + b^2 d^2 f^2 + 2abcdef $$ or $$ a^2 c^2 f^2 + a^2 d^2 e^2 + a^2 d^2 f^2 + b^2 c^2 e^2 + b^2 c^2 f^2 + b^2 d^2 e^2 ge 2abcdef quad textrm{By cancelling 2 terms on the left and right side.} $$ Now, that is just $$ (acf - bde)^2 + a^2 d^2 e^2 + a^2 d^2 f^2 + b^2 c^2 e^2 + b^2 c^2 f^2 ge 0 $$ We have proved by this that the inequality is valid for any real numbers, not only non-negative ones.
