There are a few mistakes in your solution.

First, it is not necessarily correct that : take, for example, .

Second, the fact that does not justify keeping the inequality sign. For example, if we have then , but .

Third, I believe he was looking for a specific solution (finding for which z this inequality holds), rather than a proof that this statement is true. - Jan 4th 2010, 07:50 PMSudharaka
Dear Defunkt,

Yes you are correct. Thank you for showing the mistakes of my solution. As you said he may want a solution for which the inequality is valid. Since I cannot delete the thread I have marked it wrong. - Jan 5th 2010, 08:35 AMBluedotQuote:

If , then it is equivalent to prove that

by letting , then , the above expression can be rewrited as

This is obviously true from the view of geometry (length) and the triangle inequality.

similarly for the case . - Jan 6th 2010, 04:42 AMBluedot

your claim is obviously false.

two simple counterexample: .

Can you show your effort on this prolem before asking help from other guys?
