If p , q and r $\in$ positive real numbers , with at least one of them less than unity , prove that (1-p)(1-q)(1-r)>1-p-q-r

If p , q and r $\in$ positive real numbers , with at least one of them less than unity , prove that (1-p)(1-q)(1-r)>1-p-q-r
after expanding the LHS, your inequality becomes: $pq+qr+rp > pqr.$ dividing by $pqr$ gives us: $\frac{1}{p}+\frac{1}{q}+\frac{1}{r} > 1,$ which is true because we have that at least one of $\frac{1}{p}, \frac{1}{q}, \frac{1}{r}$ is bigger than 1.
