M4056 Quiz 5, Sept. 24, 2010 Name 1. Recall that the Poisson distribution is a discrete distribution with pmf f ( x | λ ) = e - λ · λ x x ! , x = 0 , 1 , 2 , . . . a. Let v X = ( X 1 , . . ., X n ) be a sample from a Poisson distribution. Write the sample pmf explicitly as a function of vx = ( x 1 , . . ., x n ): f v X ( vx | λ ) = b. Show that n i =1 X i is a suFcient statistic for λ . 2. Suppose that X 1 , . . ., X n are independent and uniformly distributed on the open in-
