Question:

(a) Let X1, . . ., Xn be a random sample from a Poisson distribution with parameter λ. Derive a (1 €“ α) 100% large sample confidence interval for λ.
(b) To date nodes in a phylogenetic tree, the mean path length (MPL) is used in estimating the relative age of a node. The following data represent the MPL for 39 nodes (source: TomBritton, Bengt Oxelman, Annika Vinnersten, and Kare Bremer, €œPhylogenetic dating with confidence intervals using mean path-lengths€). Assume that the data (given in centimeters) follow a Poisson distribution with parameter λ.
(a) Let X1, . . ., Xn be a random

Obtain a 95% confidence interval for l and interpret.
