For fixed 𝑠β‰₯1 and any 𝑑1,𝑑2∈(0,1/2) we prove that the double inequality 𝐺𝑠(𝑑1π‘Ž+(1βˆ’π‘‘1)𝑏,𝑑1𝑏+(1βˆ’π‘‘1)π‘Ž)𝐴1βˆ’π‘ (π‘Ž,𝑏)<𝑃(π‘Ž,𝑏)<𝐺𝑠(𝑑2π‘Ž+(1βˆ’π‘‘2)𝑏,𝑑2𝑏+(1βˆ’π‘‘2)π‘Ž)𝐴1βˆ’π‘ (π‘Ž,𝑏) holds for all π‘Ž,𝑏>0 with π‘Žβ‰ π‘ if and only if 𝑑1βˆšβ‰€(1βˆ’1βˆ’(2/πœ‹)2/𝑠)/2 and 𝑑2√β‰₯(1βˆ’1/3𝑠)/2. Here, 𝑃(π‘Ž,𝑏), 𝐴(π‘Ž,𝑏) and 𝐺(π‘Ž,𝑏) denote the Seiffert, arithmetic, and geometric means of two positive numbers π‘Ž and 𝑏, respectively.
