If X is a binom. rand. var., for what value of θ is the probability b(x;n,θ) at max?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Ive no idea...

My only guess (most likely wrong) is that max and min are always derivatives...

So do i just differentiate and express θ...?

Any suggestions...?=(

Thank you!
