The main objective of the present paper, is to obtain some new versions of Young-type inequalities with respect to two weighted arithmetic and geometric means and their reverses, using two inequalities


where r = min{ν, 1 – ν}, R = max{ν,1 – ν} and K(t,2) = (t+1)24t is the Kantorovich constant, and


where h = max {ab,ba} and e(t,ν) = exp (4ν(1 – ν)(K(t,2)–1) (112t)). Also some operator versions of these inequalities and some inequalities related to Heinz mean are proved.
