Find the value of $\frac{S_{5}S_{2}}{S_{7}}$

If $a$, $b$, $c$ $\in \mathbb R$, we define $S_{k}=\frac{a^k+b^k+c^k}{k}$ (where $k$ is a non-negative integer). Given that $S_{1}=0$, find the value of $$\frac{S_{5}S_{2}}{S_{7}}$$ I tried: ...

Lower bound for $(x + y)^k $?

I'm wondering, is there a lower bound for $(x + y)^k $? For example, if $x,y,k > 0$, can we say that $(x + y)^k \geq x^k + y^k$? If anyone has a source/reference for this, that would be great.
