is (chi-square distriubtion with (n-1) degrees of freedom) If you want to try and prove that statement, use the fact that and are independent. So since the expected value of a chi-square distribution with k degrees of freedom is k
Hi tks for the reply. In addition to this, I've read book stating that the best estimator is as compared to this answer showing that . Any explaination for this?
Here's a much better proof that doesn't involve knowing anything about the chi-square distribution: so then
