Maximum likelihood estimator of binominal distribution
Correct so far?
The solution tells me to skip the [tex]\Pi[/tex]:
This is contradictory to all the examples in my book. Why?

I don't understand why you wrote L(x1...xn,p). I thought the purpose was to estimate p, the probability of a designated success outcome in a Bernoulli trial. So it should be L (p) as p is the only parameter.
I also don't see any sense in omitting the multiplicative pi symbol. What is x here, anyway? x_i all refer to the observed no. of succeses of each sample size n. So what is x?
