It is well-known that Bernstein polynomials are very important in studying the characters of smoothness in theory of approximation. A new type of combinations of Bernstein operators are given in [1]. In this paper, we give the Bernstein-Markov inequalities with step-weight functions for combinations of Bernstein polynomials with inner singularities as well as direct and inverse theorems.
