Elementary Proof for Blundon's Inequality
Region:Greater Vancouver
City:Vancouver, BC
School:Vancouver Technical Secondary
Abstract:The project gives an originally elementary proof to Blundon's inequality, which is also known as the Fundamental Triangle Inequality. By using simple geometric propositions and basic calculus, the proof provides an alternate way to Blundon's inequaliy, which would otherwise require advanced mathematics to do so.
