Question

# If $$\displaystyle \frac{1}{P_{1}}+\frac{1}{P_{2}}+\frac{1}{P_{3}}=\frac{1}{4}$$, then the least value of $$\displaystyle P_{1} P_{2} P_{3}$$ is?

A
1728
B
216
C
144
D
112

Solution

## The correct option is A $$1728$$Applying $$A.M\ge G.M$$ on $$\cfrac { 1 }{ { P }_{ 1 } } ,\cfrac { 1 }{ { P }_{ 2 } } ,\cfrac { 1 }{ { P }_{ 3 } }$$We get$$\cfrac { \cfrac { 1 }{ { P }_{ 1 } } +\cfrac { 1 }{ { P }_{ 2 } } +\cfrac { 1 }{ { P }_{ 3 } } }{ 3 } \ge { \left( \cfrac { 1 }{ { P }_{ 1 } } .\cfrac { 1 }{ { P }_{ 2 } } .\cfrac { 1 }{ { P }_{ 3 } } \right) }^{ \cfrac { 1 }{ 3 } }\\ \Rightarrow \cfrac { 1 }{ 12 } \ge { \left( \cfrac { 1 }{ { P }_{ 1 }.{ P }_{ 2 }.{ P }_{ 3 } } \right) }^{ \cfrac { 1 }{ 3 } }\\ \Rightarrow { \left( \cfrac { 1 }{ 12 } \right) }^{ 3 }\ge \cfrac { 1 }{ { P }_{ 1 }.{ P }_{ 2 }.{ P }_{ 3 } } \\ \Rightarrow { P }_{ 1 }.{ P }_{ 2 }.{ P }_{ 3 }\ge 1728$$Maths
