can be solved by taking logarithms. Assume X and Y are independent with binomial distributions b(2, 1/2) and b(3,1/2), respectively. Thus we want

f(a;) < f(a: — 1) if (n + 1)p < 3:. Thus the mode is the greatest integer
less than (n + 1)p. If (n + 1)p is an integer, there is no unique mode but
f[(n + 1)p]: f[( n + 1)p — 1] is the maximum of f(:1:). 17 18 Some Special Distributions 3.1.14
