It seems that you want to show

[tex]\frac{1-\frac{1}{2r}}{1+\frac{1}{r}}\leq \frac{1}{(1+\frac{1}{r})^{3/2}}[/tex]

This is equivalent to

[tex](1-\frac{1}{2r})(1+\frac{1}{r})^{3/2}\leq 1+\frac{1}{r}[/tex]

Try to work this out. Things you could do to simplify this is squaring both terms and multiplying both sides by a suitable power of r.
