The expression I used for the geometric mean in question 8 of the sample quiz, for N=2, was sqrt(X1 * X2).
Formula (3.4) also makes it clear how the "geometric mean" really is the *mean* of something; namely, first you take logarithms, then compute their mean, then "undo" the logarithm (that's the exponential).
More to the point, we will use this inequality later to demonstrate that geometric means are "biased": on the average, they underestimate the true average concentrations or masses of chemicals in an environmental medium, for instance.

It is not the arithmetic mean, because what these numbers mean is that on the first year your investment was multiplied (not added to) by 1.10, on the second year it was multiplied by 1.60, and the third year it was multiplied by 1.20.
If you calculate this geometric mean you get approximately 1.283, so the average rate of return is about 28% (not 30% which is what the arithmetic mean of 10%, 60%, and 20% would give you).
The arithmetic mean can also be interpreted as the length of the sides of a square whose perimeter is the same as our rectangle.

The use of Cauchy's arithmetic-geometric inequality led to the name of geometric programming for the technique.
This research went directly into the text Foundations of Optimization, which was published in 1967, and the result is that geometric programming is now applicable to a polynomial economic model with polynomial constraints as equalities and inequalities.
However, it will require less effort to obtain the final result, since the background arguments associated with the geometric-arithmetic inequality will not be required, and the results for polynomial optimization will follow directly from posynomial optimization.
