 Aug18 accepted Show that $(x+1+O(x^{-1}))^x = ex^x + O(x^{x-1})$ for $x\rightarrow \infty$ Aug15 revised Question on sufficient statistics deleted 2 characters in body Aug15 asked Question on sufficient statistics Aug15 accepted Calculating a probability mass function (sufficient statistic) Aug14 comment Calculating a probability mass function (sufficient statistic) @AlexR. ahh ok, well that would explain my inconsistent results, thanks. Aug14 comment Calculating a probability mass function (sufficient statistic) @AlexR. so you're saying that $T$ is not a random variable taking values in $1,...,n$ depending on which $X_k$ is the smallest, but instead takes the value of $X_{(1)}$?

Jul22 accepted Sampling 100 widgets to test for defective ones Jul21 comment Sampling 100 widgets to test for defective ones Yah that's right. I believe their reasoning would have been correct if the $P(B_i)$ were uniform for all $i$, but since $P(B_6)$ is very small compared to $i$'s closer to $50$, their reasoning isn't correct. Jul21 comment Sampling 100 widgets to test for defective ones statistical inference 2nd edition exercise 3.2, the answer isn't actually in the book, I found a (apparently less than perfect) pdf of solutions online. Jul21 comment Sampling 100 widgets to test for defective ones The sampling is done without replacement since I won't be checking the same widget for defectiveness multiple times. Jul21 comment Sampling 100 widgets to test for defective ones @ClementC. the summation can go on to $100$ since as you say once it passes $100-k$ it no longer contributes anything. Jul21 comment Sampling 100 widgets to test for defective ones Yah my formula gives $k=4$ (probably accounting for the fact that $P(B) < 1$), so it's far more in agreement with your estimate. So it looks like my book is in error then, thanks.
