suppose that Y1,...Yn are random samples from a uniform distribtution with
f(y l θ ) = 1/ (2θ +1) for 0<y<2θ +1.
find the max likelihood for θ.
L = product of 1/ (2θ +1) n times
= [1/ (2θ +1) ]^n
taking ln and then differentiation, i get (-2n) / (2θ +1)
but if i set that to 0, i do not get an answer.
may i know what went wrong?
