hey guys, i came across this inequality in analysis and am not sure how to prove it. Any ideas? It's not homework, im just curious..(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Let a1, a2, . . . , an be strictly positive real numbers. Show that

a1 + a2 + · · · + an−1 + an <= ((a1)^2)/a2 + ((a2)^2)/a3) +...+ ((an)^2)/a1

cheers
