Question: 3 suppose that xi xn are a random...

Question details

3. Suppose that xi, .. . ,xn are a random sample from a B(a, β) distribution : rat ra-1 (1-of-1. Here EIX-a/(a + β) and ElX2-(a + 1)a/((a + β + 1)(a + β)) (a) Show that the method of moments, using the first two moments, gives the equations (b) Determine the method of moments estimator of α and β based on the first two moments. Note: You can use the result of (a) even if you were unable to show it
