Let 𝑓𝑛(𝑧)=𝑧+𝑛𝑘=2𝑎𝑘𝑧𝑘 be the sequence of partial sums of the analytic function 𝑓(𝑧)=𝑧+𝑘=2𝑎𝑘𝑧𝑘. In this paper, we determine sharp lower bounds for {𝑓(𝑧)/𝑓𝑛(𝑧)},{𝑓𝑛(𝑧)/𝑓(𝑧)},{𝑓(𝑧)/𝑓𝑛(𝑧)}, and {𝑓𝑛(𝑧)/𝑓(𝑧)}. The usefulness of the main result not only provides the unification of the results discussed in the literature but also generates certain new results.
