Though squaring each and checking works equally as well, here's another way to figure it out:
0.016 = 1000 1000 0.016 = 16 1000 = 4 1000 4 1024 = 4 2 10 = 4 2 5 = 4 32 = 1 8 = 0.125

Just square:
0.4 2 = 0.16
0.04 2 = 0.0016
0.2 2 = 0.04
0.02 2 = 0.0004
0.13 2 = 0.0169
Can you choose?

How prove ( 2 + 5 x ) ln x 6 ( x 1 ) > 0. x > 1
let x > 1 show that:
( 2 + 5 x ) ln x 6 ( x 1 ) > 0. x > 1
Let
f ( x ) = ( 2 + 5 x ) ln x 6 ( x 1 ) ,       f ( x ) = 2 x + 5 ln x 1
since f ( 1 ) = 1.so it must prove
f ( x ) = 2 x + 5 ln x 1 > 0 ?

How to calculate the Integer portion of a fraction using only +, -, ÷ and *?
I made something in excel that calculates the days left until a given date, and from that how many weeks were left. I had it so that 9 days displayed as 1.2 using this formula:
( A B A B ) B 10 + A B
Where B is the "base" you are counting in and A is the number you are trying to count.
This all works and the question is purely for personal interest only.
So, Is there a way to calculate the Integer portion of a fraction only using the operators +, -, ÷ and *? Thanks In Advance

Ordering an even and odd fraction that are close
We know that 1 / 4 < 5 / 11 < 1 / 2
I did it this way from small to large:
1 3 4 3 = 3 12
5 11
1 6 2 6 = 6 12
It is hard for me to decide between 5/11 and 6/12 without a calculator. Is there an easier way to compare them?

Prove that a b + 2 c + 3 d + b c + 2 d + 3 a + c d + 2 a + 3 b + d a + 2 b + 3 c 2 3 .
I was thinking of trying a b c since the inequality is cyclic. I am not sure how to use this, though, or if this would help simplify the inequality. It also doesn't look like I can really use AM-GM or Cauchy-Schwarz.
