    Homework help pls!

    Hi, i need some help on my homework which is due tml. Here goes:

    Let X1,...,Xn be i.i.d. U(0, \theta) random variables. Let Yn be the maximum of X1,...,Xn.

    Yn = max {X1, ... ,Xn}.

    a) Determine a sequence {k_{n}} of constants,  k_{n} \uparrow + \infty as n  \uparrow + \infty , such that  lim_{(n \rightarrow + \infty )} P(k_{n} (\theta - Y_{n} \leq x) = G(x) ; the limit of G is a continuous distribution function you have to determine.
