    Cuboid

    Weve got cuboid ABCDABCD.
    \alpha = \angle CAB
    \beta = \angle CAD
    \gamma = \angle CAA
    Prove that:
    tg \alpha + tg \beta +tg \gamma \frac {3}{2} tg \alpha tg \beta tg \gamma

    Re: Cuboid

    I expect it means \displaystyle \begin{align*} \tan{\alpha}, \tan{\beta}, \tan{\gamma} \end{align*}.

    I tried to use Inequality of arithmetic and geometric means, but nothing's good. So, have you got any idea?
