So I have this problem to solve...
Let X denote the number of paint defects found in a square yard section of a car body painted by a robot.
These data are obtained: 8, 5, 0, 10, 0, 3, 1, 12, 2, 7, 9, 6
Assume that X has a Poisson distribution with parameter λs.
a) Find an unbiased estimate for λs.
b) Find an unbiased estimate for the average number of flaws per square yard.
c) Find an unbiased estimate for the average number of flaws per square foot.
I have no idea where to begin. I mean, how do I even find ANY unbiased estimate? The textbook is worthless imo and I can't find any good readings on the web either... please help.
