In Chapter 3, we defined a negative binomial rv as the number of failures that occur before
Question:
a. Suppose that r ‰¥ 2. Show that
p^ = (t  1) / (X + r  1)
is an unbiased estimator for p.
b. A reporter wishing to interview five individuals who support a certain candidate begins asking people whether (S) or not (F) they support the candidate. If the sequence of responses is SFFSFFFSSS, estimate p = the true proportion who support the candidate.
