# Question

With reference to Exercise 10.72, check whether the following estimators are maximum likelihood estimators of θ:
(a) 1/2 (Y1 + Yn);
(b) 1/3 (Y1 + 2Y2).
In exercise
Let X1, X2, . . . , Xn be a random sample of size n from the uniform population given by
Show that if Y1 and Yn are the first and nth order statistic, any estimator Θ such that
Can serve as a maximum likelihood estimator of θ. This shows that maximum likelihood estimators need not be unique.
