First consider some familiar results, the inequality of the arithmetic and geometric mean is: Kantorovich's inequality (reference [1]) asserts that if 0 < A ≦f(x) ≦ B then: The Cauchy-Schwarz inequality is: This paper discusses a certain class of inequalities which includes the three above. Three theorems are proved which apply to any inequality of this class; then follow some examples. They are mainly to show how the general theory helps in the finding of inequalities, but the result of Example 1 seems worth reporting for its own sake.
