In this paper we show that the median of the binomial distribution $B(n, p)$ is unique for all rational $p$ with the only exception of $p=\frac{1}{2}$ and $n$ odd

Significance improvement by randomized test in random sampling without replacement

This paper studies one-sided hypothesis testing under random sampling without replacement. That is, when n + 1 binary random variables X 1 ,...,X n +1 are subject to a permutation invariant

Mean, Median and Mode in Binomial Distributions

Summary While studying the median of the binomial distribution we discovered that the mean median‐mode inequality, recently discussed in. Statistics Neerlandica by Runnen‐burg 141 and Van Zwet [7]

Mean, median, mode IV

This note continues the discussion about the well‐known mean‐median‐mode inequality (Runnenburg, 1978, van Zwet, 1979, and Dharmadhikari and Joag‐dev, 1983). A discrete analogue of this inequality is

Bounds for median and 50 percetage point of binomial and negative binomial distribution

Inequalities for comparing the binomial distribution function/operating characteristic function with value 0.5 have been established long ago. It is a trivial task to infer from these inequalities

Mean, Median, and Skew: Correcting a Textbook Rule

Many textbooks teach a rule of thumb stating that the mean is right of the median under right skew, and left of the median under left skew. This rule fails with surprising frequency. It can fail in...

THE MEAN-MEDIAN-MODE INEQUALITY: COUNTEREXAMPLES

Let x be a random variable whose first three moments exist. If the density of x is unimodal and positively skewed, then counterexamples are provided which show that the inequality mode ≤ median ≤

Mean, median, mode II

Summary  In a delightful note Runnenburg [2] has recently discussed the celebrated mean-median-mode inequality. The present note continues this discussion.

Mean, median, mode

Summary This note is an attempt to avoid doing the same search for the third time. It happened twice in my life that I wished to prove that the median is located between mean and mode for certain

Mean, Median, Mode III*

Abstract Recently, Van Zwet (1979) has discussed several conditions under which the celebrated mean‐median‐mode inequality holds. This note points out that Van Zwet's basic condition and its variants
