    skewness and kurtosis for the binomial distribution

    Hi,
    I was wondering if there was a way on how to show the skewness and kurtosis of the binomial distribution? Example: X~Bin(n,p)
    because when i check references they lead me to the actual values without the computations.. Thanks

    Start with the definition. What have you tried and where do you get stuck?
