Generalization of a Geometric Inequality

Xiao-Guang Chu and Jian Liu

Full-text: Open access


In this paper, using Bottema's inequality for two triangles and other results, the generalization of an inequality involving the medians and angle-bisectors of the triangle is proved. This settles affirmatively a problem posed by J-Liu.
