Question

psychologist is measuring learning in mice. He assumes that a mouse learns to recognize a specific object after a random number of exposures, and the number is geometrically distributed with parameter p. He exposes one of his subject mice to 3 different objects on 3 different days and records the (independent) numbers of exposures: 4, 3, and 7.

A) Based on this data, what is the maximum likelihood estimate of p?

O 0.7857

O 0.2143

O 0.2727

O 0.1765

Answer:Option B) 0.2143

Step-by-step explanation:We are

given the followingin the question:Numbers of exposures(x): 4,3,7

We have to find the

maximum likelihood estimate of p.Formula:Putting the values, we get,

Thus, the correct answer is

Option B) 0.2143
