Can someone help me?
Show that for and for a pair of real vectors and , the quantity
is bounded above by
For x=0 it is the Cauchy’s inequality and for x=1 it is an identity.

My solution is very ugly. I think there is a better solution.
Then we immediately have some identities and inequalities.
Now,
The last inequality is true as
is the cauchy schwarz inequality and

Here is another solution: The case x=0 is cauchy .
for , let for some real no. t
then the inequality becomes
which is equilvalent to
which follows from cauchyschwarz
