Kishore Kumar

Consider, a2 + b2 + c2 – ab – bc – ca = 0
Multiply both sides with 2, we get
2( a2 + b2 + c2 – ab – bc – ca) = 0
⇒ 2a2 + 2b2 + 2c2 – 2ab – 2bc – 2ca = 0
⇒ (a2 – 2ab + b2) + (b2 – 2bc + c2) + (c2 – 2ca + a2) = 0
⇒ (a –b)2 + (b – c)2 + (c – a)2 = 0
Since the sum of square is zero then each term should be zero
⇒ (a –b)2 = 0,  (b – c)2 = 0, (c – a)2 = 0
⇒ (a –b) = 0,  (b – c) = 0, (c – a) = 0
⇒ a = b,  b = c, c = a
∴ a = b = c

Consider, a2 + b2 + c2 – ab – bc – ca = 0
Multiply both sides with 2, we get
2( a2 + b2 + c2 – ab – bc – ca) = 0
⇒ 2a2 + 2b2 + 2c2 – 2ab – 2bc – 2ca = 0
⇒ (a2 – 2ab + b2) + (b2 – 2bc + c2) + (c– 2ca + a2) = 0
⇒ (a –b)2 + (b – c)2 + (c – a)2 = 0
Since the sum of square is zero then each term should be zero
⇒ (a –b)2 = 0,  (b – c)2 = 0, (c – a)2 = 0
⇒ (a –b) = 0,  (b – c) = 0, (c – a) = 0
⇒ a = b,  b = c, c = a
∴ a = b = c.
