Inequality ((ab-1)(bc-1)(ca-1))/((a^2-1)(b^2-1)(c^2-1))

Postby Guest » Fri Apr 01, 2022 3:24 pm

Numerical experiments indicate that the inequality 1 < [tex]\frac{(ab-1)(bc-1)(ca-1)}{(a^{2 }-1)( b^{2 }-1)( c^{2 }-1)}[/tex] < [tex]\frac{9}{8}[/tex] appears to be true when [tex]3 \le a < b < c[/tex].

Is there an easy proof? Or is it a hard Olympiad type problem?
