Abstract: Coifman and Fefferman proved that the ``reverse Hölder inequality'' is fulfilled for any weight satisfying the Muckenhoupt condition. In order to illustrate the power of the Bellman function technique, Nazarov, Volberg, and Treil showed (among other things) how this technique leads to the reverse Hölder inequality for the weights satisfying the dyadic Muckenhoupt condition on the real line. In this paper the proof of the reverse Hölder inequality with sharp constants is presented for the weights satisfying the usual (rather than dyadic) Muckenhoupt condition on the line. The results are a consequence of the calculation of the true Bellman function for the corresponding extremal problem.
