Well, the question and my working out is shown below. I think that I know how to do the moment estimator maybe.. but I'm just having trouble with the integration part. I have a STRONG feeling that I'm doing it wrong. Can someone please help me?
Let X1 .. Xn be a random sample with pdf f(x) = e^-(x - theta), x> theta. Find the moment estimator and the maximum likelihood estimator of the parameter theta.
Well, I'm not sure where the 0 and 1 came from. I'm really lost, and just put that there because all the examples in my book use 0 and 1 so i just assumed.. well i guess Im wrong then SIGH
So um how do you know what the range is then? ><
