in need of help for how to do this question(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

given probability mass function:

x 1 2 3 4

p(x) 1/4(θ+2) 1/4(θ) 1/4(1-θ) 1/4(1-θ)

Marbles

1=green

2=blue

3=red

4=white

For 3839 randomly picked marbles

green=1997

blue=32

red=906

white=904

what is the max likelihood of θ using this data?
