# Prove $\frac{a+b}{\sqrt{c}}+\frac{a+c}{\sqrt{b}}+ \frac{b+c}{\sqrt{a}} \geq 2(\sqrt{a} + \sqrt{b} +\sqrt{c})$

Could anyone advise me on how to prove this inequality:

$$\dfrac{a+b}{\sqrt{c}}+\dfrac{a+c}{\sqrt{b}}+ \dfrac{b+c}{\sqrt{a}} \geq 2(\sqrt{a} + \sqrt{b} +\sqrt{c}),$$

where $a,b,c$ are any positive real numbers.

Do I use the AM-GM inequality somewhere?

Thank you.

$$\frac{a}{\sqrt{b}} +\frac{a}{\sqrt{b}} +\frac{b}{\sqrt{a}} \geq 3 \sqrt{a}$$ and $$\frac{a}{\sqrt{c}} +\frac{a}{\sqrt{c}} +\frac{c}{\sqrt{a}} \geq 3 \sqrt{a}$$ Doing this for the other variables and summing respectively you get $$3\left ( \dfrac{a+b}{\sqrt{c}}+\dfrac{a+c}{\sqrt{b}}+ \dfrac{b+c}{\sqrt{a}} \right) \geq 6( \sqrt{a} + \sqrt{b} +\sqrt{c} )$$ Simplifying gives the desired inequality.
