(a+b+c)2 = a2+2*a*b+2*a*c+b2+2*b*c+c2

 

so we have 

a2+2*a*b+2*a*c+b2+2*b*c+c2 = a2+b2+c2

 

Subtract a2+b2+c2 from both sides

2*a*b+2*a*c+2*b*c = 0

 

Divide all terms by 2*a*b*c and we are left with

1/c + 1/b + 1/a = 0

(a+b+c)2 = a2+2*a*b+2*a*c+b2+2*b*c+c2

 

so we have 

a2+2*a*b+2*a*c+b2+2*b*c+c2 = a2+b2+c2

 

Subtract a2+b2+c2 from both sides

2*a*b+2*a*c+2*b*c = 0

 

Divide all terms by 2*a*b*c and we are left with

1/c + 1/b + 1/a = 0
