 Jan31 revised closest point to on $y=1/x$ to a given point added 6 characters in body; edited title Jan30 comment Conditional Distributions and Probabilities $Y$ is a continuous random variable. Isn't it true that $Pr(Y=y|\eta)=0$? Jan30 comment Let $X$ and $Y$ be two Poisson random variables with same lambda parameter. What is the distribution of $\frac{X}{X+Y}$? I am not sure what this distribution is, but it's definitely not uniform on $[0, 1]$. Jan30 revised Let $X$ and $Y$ be two Poisson random variables with same lambda parameter.

Jan29 comment maximising the frequency of mode. What do you mean by "distribute"? And what does "(give $2$ to $3$)" mean?

You can't write the log-likelihood like this. Take a look at your likelihood function instead. Which value of $\theta$ would maximize this function? Jan29 comment Method of Moments on a Uniform distribution (a,b) Your second moment equation is wrong. The right-hand side is the population second moment, the left-hand side should be the sample second moment which is $\frac{1}{n}\sum_{i=1}^{n}x_i^2$.
