Really need help with these two questions. I have been working on them for some time and just can't seem to make any significant progress(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

1) X is a continuous random variable with density function

f(x) = (θ + 1)x^θ , 0 < x < 1 and 0 elsewhere

Derive both the method of moments estimator and the maximum likelihood estimator for λ.

*For the MOM estimator you will need to find the mean*

2) Two surgical procedures are compares and what is of interest are the complication rates. 150 patients had procedure A and there were 35 complications while procedure B tested 138 patients and there were 34 complications. Does this indicate a difference at a 1% level. What is the P-value?
