How should I prove this?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

From John Preskill's quantum computation & quantum information lecture notes(chapter 5)

If a pure state is drawn randomly from the ensemble{|φ_{x}〉,p_{x}}, so that the density matrix is ρ = ∑p_{x}|φ_{x}〉<φ_{x}|

Then, H(X)≥S(ρ)

where H stands for Shannon entropy of probability {p_{x}} and S stands for Von Neumann entropy.
