Maximum Likelihood
Find the maximum likelihood estimate for the parameter $\mu$ of the normal distribution with known variance $\sigma^{2} = \sigma_{0} ^{2}$

This seems to be a conceptual question on maximum likelihood. But to be honest, I didn't really understand the concept too well in lecture. So, I'm hoping someone can walk me through this problem. Thanks!

Surprisingly, yes! Same question with little difference in language and latex. And the user seems to be different!(Wondering)

That was my classmate. We just happened to have the same question. I do apologize for not realizing you already answered his question. But I actually didn't even know that he posted in the other board. I'm sorry about any problems this caused.
