Let An and Gn (respectively, A′n and G′n) be the weighted arithmetic and geometric means of x1, …, xn (respectively, 1 – x1, …, 1 – xn). We present sharp upper and lower bounds for the differences and . And we determine the best possible constants r and s such that
holds for all xi ∈ [a, b] (i = 1, …, n; 0 < a < b < 1). Our theorems extend and sharpen results of Fan, Cartwright and Field, McGregor and the author.
