The first part of this question involves an easy evaluation of the
integrals and then some simple algebra to compare the
In the second part you will get a quadratic inequality in $\lambda$
of the form $$U + 2V\lambda + W\lambda^2 \geq 0.$$ Completing the
square leads to a condition for this inequality to hold which gives
the required result.
The NRICH Project aims to enrich the mathematical experiences of all learners. To support this aim, members of the
NRICH team work in a wide range of capacities, including providing professional development for teachers wishing to
embed rich mathematical tasks into everyday classroom practice. More information on many of our other activities
