Abstract
Proving inequalities is an important part of mathematics. It is also an example of problems that are frequently given on mathematics competitions. In this thesis we have worked on inequalities between arithmetic, geometric, harmonic and quadratic means. The most famous inequality is the one between arithmetic and geometric mean. We have given four different proofs of that inequality. Beside of that, we have shown on a few examples how to use that inequality for proving other inequalities, and also for solving some other problems like finding maximum values of functions. Also, we have solved two problems from International Mathematical Olympiad, which are good examples of using inequality between arithmetic and geometric mean. In the remaining part of thesis, one can find proofs of inequalities between geometric and harmonic, and arithmetic and quadratic inequality, and also a few examples of the application of those inequalities.
