URGENT help needed (Estimators) (Statistics) watch

    • Thread Starter

    To follow on from my other thread: this time we have X1....Xn i.i.d uniform random variables with unknown parameter theta. I have 2 estimators, f = max Xi and g = 2/n(Sum from i=1 to i=n of Xi). I need to construct a third estimator E(f given g) and show the mean square error of this is smaller than that of g. Any ideas, I am really stuck here and the assignment is due in tomorrow :/ Thanks for rading, sorry for bad notation.
