Probability for estimate/poisson distribution
I've searched the forum for topic but I can't seem find one with the same problem, so here goes:
I have Xi given as the number of an occurrence pr quarter.
X1...Xn is independent and Xi~Poisson(a)
I have maximized a for the likelihoodfunction to be [LaTeX ERROR:
as an estimation of a.
Now to my question:
For a=1.25 and n=10, what is the probability that a* equals respectively 1.1 and 1.25?
My paper is to be done in a couple of hours, so help would be very much appreciated.. (Smile)
Edit: Even though the couple of hours has gone by, I actually still need som help, so if anyone have a hint or two..?
