Prove inequality a 3 b 3 ( a b ) 3 9 4
Given a , b , c are positive number. Prove that
a 3 b 3 ( a b ) 3 + b 3 c 3 ( b c ) 3 + c 3 a 3 ( c a ) 3 9 4
3 ( a + b ) 2 + ( a b ) 2 ( a b ) 2 9
( a + b ) 2 ( a b ) 2 + ( b + c ) 2 ( b c ) 2 + ( c + a ) 2 ( c a ) 2 2
Which
a + b a b . b + c b c + b + c b c . c + a c a + c + a c a . a + b a b = 1
Use x 2 + y 2 + z 2 2 ( x y + y z + z x ) then inequality right
I don't know why use x 2 + y 2 + z 2 2 ( x y + y z + z x ) then inequality right?
P/s: Sorry i knowed, let x = a + b a b
We have ( x + 1 ) ( y + 1 ) ( z + 1 ) = ( x 1 ) ( y 1 ) ( z 1 ) => x y + y z + z x = 1

Expression for binomial coefficient denominator
I'm trying to find an analytical expression for the denominator of ( 1 / 2 k ) in terms of k when the fraction is fully reduced.
E.g., the first several such denominators, starting with k = 0, are
1 , 2 , 8 , 16 , 128 , 256 , 1024 , 2048 , 32768 so there are various power-of-2 jumps, but I haven't been able to figure out the overall pattern so that I can nail down the expression.
Does anyone know of such an expression, or know of a good place to look to try to figure this out? If not, does anyone know if this is a fool's errand?
Thanks for any help.

Simplify complex fraction
This is a really low level question. I'm trying to simplify
f ( x ) = 36 x 2 3 x 1 18 12 x 2 25 x 1 + 12
After factoring, removing negative exponents, and flipping the second fraction I get
f ( x ) = 1 3 ( 3 x + 2 ) ( 4 x 3 ) ( 3 x 4 ) ( 4 x 3 ) 1
Then ( 4 x 3 ) cancels leaving
f ( x ) = 3 x 4 3 ( 3 x + 2 )
as my final answer. However the book I have says the correct answer is
f ( x ) = 3 ( 2 x + 3 ) 4 x 3
I've checked my work many times and I don't know how they get this answer. Could someone please help me solve this?
