Abstract: Theorems on two-sided inequalities for Gauss and Kummer's hypergeometric functions as given by Buschman have been improved. Complex analogues of the said inequalities have been developed and it is pointed out that a similar analysis gives extensions of Luke's, Flett's, and Carlson's theorems.
