STAT 100B Midterm Solution Problem 1 Suppose X 1 ,X 2 ,...,X n Exp( λ ). The density function of Exp( λ ) is f ( x ) = λe - λx for x 0, and f ( x ) = 0 for x < 0. (1) Suppose we want to estimate λ by solving the estimating equation Pr( X > 1) = m/n , where m is the number of X i that are greater than 1. Please find the estimate of λ . (2) Please find the MLE of λ . 1. Pr ( X > 1) = R 1 λe - λx = - e - λx | 1 = e - λ = m/n ˆ λ = log( n/m ) 2. MLE L ( λ ) = λ n e - λ x i l ( λ ) = n log λ - λ x i ∂l ∂λ = n λ - x i = 0 ˆ λ = 1 / ¯ X Problem 2 (1) Suppose X 1 ,X 2 ,...,X n N( μ,σ 2 ). Please find the MLE of μ and σ 2 . Note: the density function of N( μ,σ 2 ) is f ( x ) = 1 2 πσ 2 e - ( x - μ ) 2 2 σ 2 . (2) Suppose X 1 ,X 2 ,...,X n N( μ 1 2 ), and Y 1 ,Y 2 ,...,Y m N( μ 2 2 ). Please find the MLE of μ 1 , μ 2 and σ 2 . 1.
