I have two sets of numbers satisfying: x1+x2+...+xn>=y1+y2+...+yn Whether it is the case: x1^2+x2^2+...+xn^2>=y1^2+y2^2+...+yn^2 (xi^2 presents the square of xi). xi,yi here are not negative numbers.

Proof by mathematical induction. Assuming you want to prove it for all n. x1>y1 implies x1^2>y1^2 x2>y2 implies x2^2>y2^2 Add together and get x1+x2>y1+y2 implies x1^2+x2^2>y1^2+y2^2

What do you think about: 3+1>=2+2 3^2+1^2>=2^2+2^2
