In this technical note, we give a short proof based on some standard results in convex analysis of some important characterization results listed in Theorems 3 and 4 of Benson [Benson, H.P., 2006. Fractional programming with convex quadratic forms and functions. European Journal of Operational Research]. Actually our result is slightly more general since we do not specify the nonempty convex set X. For clarity we use the same notation for the different equivalent optimization problems as done in Benson (2006).
