The operation is of two step.
1. Bin a data in 10 bins. (the distribution is unimodal) and
2. Then find the bin with maximum density.
In other words finding the mode of a distribution.

Let p ^ ( x ) be the empirical distribution of your data set, i.e.
p ^ ( x ) =  # of observed x # of observations
Then, the mode is arg max x p ^ ( x )
For a probability density or mass function f ( x ), the mode is arg max x f ( x ).

A random variable, X, is defined as X ~ Geo(p). I know the mode is 1 as it is the value of X with highest probability.
How do i show this? As this is a discrete R.V, can i be allowed to use Calculus?

How can I calculate the mode in a grouped frequency distribution when the largest frequency occurs in two or more classes?
asked 2022-06-10
Find the mode, we need to find the value of x for which f ( x ) = 0 and f ( x ) < 0. After applying derivative to the pdf, how do we proceed?

need to generate some random data from lognormal distribution, where I set the mode and standart deviation of that lognormal distribution. For this purpose I choose to use random numbers generator from lognormal distribution. This generator takes two numbers, that are mean and sd of underlying normal distribution.
So far its clear I need to derive mean and sd of normal distribution, which is underlaying for lognormal distribution where I know mode and sd. I know the equations for derivation of mean and sd:
n ( x ) = mean of normal distribution
s d ( x ) = s d of normal distribution
n ( y ) = mean of lognormal distribution
s d ( y ) = sd of lognormal distribution
m o d e ( y ) = mode of lognormal distribution
n ( x ) = 2 l n ( n ( y ) ) ( 1 / 2 ) l n ( s d ( y ) 2 + n ( y ) 2 )
s d ( x ) = 2 l n ( n ( y ) ) + l n ( s d ( y ) 2 + n ( y ) 2 )
m o d e ( y ) = e x p ( n ( y ) s d ( y ) 2 )
Here I stuck because I cant get the equation for n ( y ) from these equations, that I need to compute n ( x ). So far I ended:
m o d e ( y ) = e x p ( 4 l n ( n ( y ) ) 3 / 2 l n ( n ( y ) 2 s d ( y ) 2 ) )
m o d e ( y ) 2 / 3 s d ( y ) 2 = n ( y ) 2 ( n ( y ) 2 / 3 m o d e ( y ) 2 / 3 )
Can anybody help me to complete this derivation?

Given a sample (the scope is 72 elements) with mode=54 mean=55,7 median=54,5. The 73th value of the extended sample is 56. What can I say about the mode, median and mean of the extended sample?
asked 2022-07-07
Given the mean, median and mode of a function and have to find the probability density function.
mean: γ β Γ 1
median: γ β ( l n 2 ) 1 / δ
mode: γ β ( 1 1 / δ ) 1 / δ
Also given that
Γ k = Γ ( 1 + k / δ )
Γ ( z ) = 0 t z 1 d t
< x < γ , β > 0 , γ > 0
Now I understand how to calculate the mean, mode and median when given a probability density function. However I'm struggling to go backwards. I initially tried to "reverse" the process by differentiating the mean or median however I know this is skipping the substitution over the given limit.
I then looked for patterns with known distributions and realised they are from Weibull distribution however γ . Does this mean essentially this is a typical Weibull distribution however shifted by γ and therefore the pdf will be γ W e i b u l l p d f "

Consider random variable Y with a Poisson distribution:
P ( y | θ ) = θ y e θ y ! , y = 0 , 1 , 2 , , θ > 0
P ( y | θ ) = θ y e θ y ! , y = 0 , 1 , 2 , , θ > 0
Mean and variance of Y given θ are both equal to θ. Assume that i = 1 n y i > 1.
If we impose the prior p 1 θ , then what is the Bayesian posterior mode?
I was able to calculate the likelihood and the posterior, but I'm having trouble calculating the mode so I'm wondering if I got the right posterior:
P ( θ | y ) = l i k e l i h o o d p r i o r
P ( θ | y ) ( θ i = 1 n y i e n θ ) ( θ 1 )
P ( θ | y ) θ ( i = 1 n y i ) 1 e n θ

i'm seeking out thoughts for a 15-hour mathematical enrichment course in a chinese language high faculty. What (pretty) simple concern would you advocate as a subject for any such course?
historical past/issues:
My students are generally pretty good at math, but many of them have no longer been uncovered to rigorous or summary mathematical reasoning. an amazing topic would be one that could not be impossibly hard for students who have by no means written or study proofs in English.
i have taught this magnificence three times earlier than. (a part of the purpose that i'm posting that is that i have used up all my thoughts!) the primary semester I taught an introductory range theory elegance (which meandered its way toward a proof of quadratic reciprocity, though I think this become in the end too advanced/abstract for some of the students). the second one semester I taught fundamental graph idea and packages (with a focal point on planarity and coloring). The 1/3 semester I taught a class at the Rubik's dice.
the students' math backgrounds are pretty numerous: a number of them take part in contest math competitions, and so are familiar with IMO-fashion techniques, however many aren't. a number of them may additionally realize some calculus, however I cannot assume it. all of them are superb at what in the united states is on occasion termed "pre-calculus": trigonometry, conic sections, systems of linear equations (though, shockingly, no matrices), and the like. They realize what a binomial coefficient is.
So, any ideas? preferably, i'd like to find some thing a bit "sexy" (like the Rubik's cube) -- tries to encourage wide variety theory through cryptography seemed to fall on deaf ears, however being capable of "see" institution idea on the cube became pretty popular.
(Responses specifically welcome from folks who grew up in the percent -- any mathematical subjects you desire were protected within the excessive college curriculum?)
