Hi, can someone please help me just START this question or give me hints on what to do because i have no idea what to do:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex]Y_i| \mu, \sigma^2[/tex]~[tex]N(\mu,\sigma^2)[/tex]

use [tex] p(\sigma^2) \propto \frac{1}{\sigma^2} [/tex] and [tex]p(\mu|\sigma^2) = \frac{1}{\sqrt{2\pi}\sqrt{c}\sigma} exp[-\frac{1}{2} \frac {\mu^2}{c \sigma^2}][/tex]

and show that

[tex]p(t|y) \propto (1 + \frac{t^2}{n})^{-(\frac{n+1}{2})}[/tex]

where

[tex]

t = \frac{\sqrt{n + 1/c}}{\sqrt{\frac{s}{n} + \frac{\overline{y^2}(1/c)}{(n+1/c)}}} (\mu - \frac{n \overline{y}}{n + 1/c}) [/tex]

any guidance would be VERY appreciated because Ive just been staring at this question for the past two days... Thank you?
