Method of moments

    maybe i'm missing some stupid algebraic mistake..but given theta/theta + 1 = y. how does this imply that the method of moment is theta = y/ 1-y??

    I am not sure what you mean by the method of moment. However, given y=x/(x+1), then x=y/(1-y) is just elementary algebra.

    Style note for future - use parentheses!
