Let $\displaystyle A$ denote the largest of the numbers $\displaystyle a_1 , a_2 , ... , a_p$ for $\displaystyle p,n \in N $ Need explanation for $\displaystyle \frac{A}{\sqrt[n]{p}}\leq \sqrt[\displaystyle n]{\frac{a^{n}_1+a^{n}_2 +...+a^{n}_p } {p}}\leq A$ how to show it is true (how to derive?)

the only restriction on $a$ is that $\max{(a_k)} = A$ so if we choose $s$ as $a_1=A,~a_k = 0,~k=2,p$ the expression on the right becomes $\dfrac{A}{\sqrt[n]{p}}$ Now consider the sequence $a_k = A$ This should produce the largest value of that expression $\sqrt[n]{\dfrac{ p A^n}{p}} = A \sqrt[n]{\dfrac{p}{p}} = A$ and thus we see $\dfrac{A}{\sqrt[n]{p}} \leq \sqrt[n]{\dfrac{\sum \limits_{k=1}^p~a_k^n}{p}} \leq A$
