# Bounding the Difference and Ratio Between the Weighted Arithmetic and Geometric Means

## Main Article Content

### Abstract

In the paper, making use of two integral representations for the difference and ratio of the weighted arithmetic and geometric means and employing the weighted arithmetic-geometric-harmonic mean inequality, the author bounds the difference and ratio between the weighted arithmetic and geometric means in the form of double inequalities.
