**Problem:**

Prove that in any acute angled triangle of sides a, b, c, semi perimeter p, in-radius r, and circumradius R, the following inequalities hold:

**Proof:**

Let D be the foot of the altitude from A, and D will be on the side BC since the triangle has only acute angles. Now, by summing up and , we get

For the other part, we have the following equivalences:

—– call the above as **relation I**

But, and and by **Minkowski’s inequality, **we have . Then, we will have

which holds for all positive a and because of the **AM-GM inequality**. This tells us that (1) is true, and thus so is our conclusion.
