Abstract  Let T be a nontrivial tree with diameter D(T) and radius R(T). Let I(T) be the inverse dual degree of T which is defined to be , where for uV(T). For any longest path P of T, denote by a(P) the number of vertices outside P with degree at least 2, b(P) the number of vertices on P with degree at least 3 and distance at least 2 to each of the endvertices of P, and c(P) the number of vertices adjacent to one of the endvertices of P and with degree at least 3. In this note we prove that . As a corollary we then get
with equality if and only if T is a path of at least four vertices. The latter inequality strengthens a conjecture made by the program Graffiti.
