    Obtain the maximum likelihoob estimate of the average arrival rate

    It is assumed that the arrival of the number of calls X per hour follows Poisson distribution with parameter \lambda. A random sample X_1 \; = \; x_1 , X_2 \; = \; x_2 , ... X_n \; = \; x_n is taken . Obtain the maximum likelihood estimate of the average arrival rate.

    Can you construct the likelihood function?
