In this paper, we are concerned with sums involving inverses of binomial coefficients. We study certain sums involving reciprocals of binomial coefficients by using some integrals. Some recurrence relations related to inverses of binomial coefficients are obtained. In addition, we give the approximate values of certain sums involving the inverses of binomial coefficients.
