Prove that y1=A(x^2)+Bx+C always exceeds y0=Dx+E for positive A and D, for all x>x0 for some value x0? Um, y1-y0 = A(x^2) + (B-D)x + (C-E)  This is a positive parabola with standard solutions. To the right of it's higher root, it's always positive, so y1>y0. Now, I take it you don't want proof of the roots to quadratic equations? -- Alex Bligh
