I was in a hurry and when one is not familiar with the derivation ,often one messes the formula.

Yeah the correct relationship is Mode=3Median-2Mean.What is the derivation for it?

I suppose you can get it using an Edgeworth expansion including the skewness and the curtosis:

Well then what's the derivation for empirical formula?

Oh sorry we posted at the same time just seconds delay.Can you give the proof using algebraic manipulation other than using variance or standard deviation?

I have seen that link in Mathematics stack exchange before and I did't get it that's why I have posted it here.When you first posted that it is not a valid relationship I thought that modification in statistic may have came for this formula.

No problem if you don't know but if you can help for some initial steps It would help me.
