Here's the problem: Sq root(ab) ≤ (a+b)/2

So I'm stuck here, how do I prove that a and b are positive real numbers? Should I go with a counterexample?

a= -1

b= -1

sqrt(ab)=sqrt(1)=1

(a+b)/2 = (-1-1)/2 = -1

sqrt(ab)>(a+b)/2 - October 24th 2012, 03:31 AMPlatoRe: Can anyone help me prove this equation?
