Abstract: For $A\subset X=\{x_1,...,x_n ~\vert~x_i\geq 0, ~i=1,2,...,n\},$ let $a_A$ and $g_A$ denote the arithmetic mean and geometric mean of elements of $A$, respectively. It is proved that if $k$ is an integer in $(\frac{n}{2}, n]$, then

\begin{displaymath}\Big(\prod_{\vert A\vert=k\atop A\subset X}a_{A}\Big)^{\frac{... ...{1}{C_n^k}\Big(\sum_{\vert A\vert=k\atop A\subset X}g_{A}\Big),\end{displaymath}

with equality if and only if $x_1=...=x_n$. Furthermore, as a generalization of this inequality, a mixed power-mean inequality for subsets is established.
