This paper generalizes results of Cheung and Ma (2005) to more general inequalities with more than one distinct nonlinear term. From our results, some results of Cheung and Ma (2005) can be deduced as some special cases. Our results are also applied to show the boundedness of the solutions of a partial differential equation.
