Dear manoj,

A,B,C are less than 90 degrees hence

 cosA>cosB>cosC (consider A<B<C)

We have, secA<secB<secC

Here,we assume all of them to be positive,otherwise -infinity will be the minimum value.

we have (cosA+cosB+cosC)(secA+secB+secC)>=9   (tschebyhef’s in equality)

We already know the maximum value of cosA+cosB+cosC is 3/2.(we can prove it easily)

=> (secA+secB+secC)>= 9*(2/3)
