# Thread: Method of Maximum Likelihood for a pdf

1. ## Method of Maximum Likelihood for a pdf

How do I find the MLE for K based on a ramdom sample of size n from a distribution with pdf:

f(x,K) = 2K^2x^-3, for K<=x;
0, x<K; 0<K.

2. you will need x's as small as possible whihc means the min of the X's
which is called the first order statistic
