Any help with this question would be appreciated. Thanks
The number of breakdowns in a manufacturing process may be assumed to follow a Poisson distribution with parameter \lamda.
During a 30 day period it was observed that on exactly 9 days there were no breakdowns. On the remaining 21 days all that is known is that there was at least one breakdown. Find the MLE of \lamda
(Sorry I gave up with latex couldn't get it to work...suppose, people know the probability function p(x) well though..)
