In a very interesting and recent note, Tung-Po Lin [1] obtained the least value q and the greatest value p such that Mp<L<Mqis valid for all distinct positive numbers x and y where Ms=(xs+ys2)1sandL=xyInx-Iny

The object of this paper is to give a simpler proof than Lin's of a more general result. More precisely, the author obtained the classes of functions fα and hα, αR such that Infα(t)hα(t)[t1/α+1]α>0,t>1.
