1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data 1. An experiment consists of giving a sequences of patients a risky treatment until two have died, and then recording N, the number who survived. If p is the proportion killed by the treatment, then the distribution of N is: P(N=n)=(n+1)(1-p)n p2 1)Find a general formula for the MLE for p: 2)the experiment is done in 8 hospitals and the observed values of N are 3,0,4,2,3,5,1,3. Compute the estimate for the p derived in part 1 2. Relevant equations 2. I know I have to start by finding a general form of ∏(ni+1)(1-p)ni p2 with ni where i goes from 1 to m. 3. The attempt at a solution 3. So I get hung up on how to handle the (ni+1) term.
