Estimation of p In repeated, independent, experiments with two outcomes, S and F, we are interested in the probability of S, i.e. p = P(S), per trial. To estimate it, the method is quite simple. Just perform the experiment n times. If x is the number of S’s, then and unbiased estimate for p is x ˆ p= n Example 5: An unbalanced coin i...
