Re: BR Maths Corner-1

You are right So let me try differently Since a, b c are positive No's, We can use a^3 + b^3 >= a^2b + ab^2 Then 1 / ( 1 + acube + bcube ) <= 1 / ( 1 + a square b + absquare ) RHS becomes ABC / ( ABC + asquareb + a square ) Take out ab, you get c/( c + a + b ) Cyclically , original LHS <= ( a + b c ...

We need x(x+1)(2x+1) to be divisible by 6. x(x+1)(2x+1) is always divisible by 6 isn't it since the quotient is equal to 1^2 + 2^2 ...x^2 or am i missing something obvious only thing i get is 3y(y+1)/ x(x+1) = 2x+1 i.e a whole number . so looks like if y(y+1) is divisible by x(x+1) then that is one...
