(b) Give a point estimate of (lambda) using the following 11 observations of X that were collected by Chris:

1,0,1,3,3,0,2,2,4,1,1

I could use some direction with this problem....I keep looking through this put together book my professor is constructing with no luck on how to even go about starting to solve this problem.
