## Abstract

We give the best lower bound for the weighted Jensen's discrete inequality with ordered variables applied to a convex function , in the case when the lower bound depends on , weights, and two given variables. Furthermore, under the same conditions, we give some sharp lower bounds for the weighted AM-GM inequality and AM-HM inequality.

## 1. Introduction

## 2. Main Results

Theorem 2.1.

For proving Theorem 2.1, we will need the following three lemmas.

Lemma 2.2.

Lemma 2.3.

Lemma 2.4.

Applying Theorem 2.1 for and using the substitutions , , we obtain

Corollary 2.5.

Using Corollary 2.5, we can prove the propositions below.

Proposition 2.6.

with equality for . When , equality holds again for , , .

Proposition 2.7.

with equality if and only if .

Remark 2.8.

Equality in (2.18) holds for . If , then equality holds again for , , .

Remark 2.9.

with equality if and only if .

Applying Theorem 2.1 for , we obtain

Corollary 2.10.

Remark 2.11.

Applying Theorem 2.1 for , we obtain the following.

Corollary 2.12.

Using Corollary 2.12, we can prove the following proposition.

Proposition 2.13.

with equality for .

## 3. Proof of Lemmas

Proof of Lemma 2.2.

Proof of Lemma 2.3.

by Lemma 2.2, the conclusion follows.

Proof of Lemma 2.4.

## 4. Proof of Theorem

## 5. Proof of Propositions

Proof of Proposition 2.6.

Since for , and is increasing, , is increasing, and hence for . This concludes the proof.

Proof of Proposition 2.7.

Since for , is strictly increasing, , and is strictly increasing, , is strictly increasing, and hence for .

Proof of Proposition 2.13.

The proposition is proved.
