Step 1
Concept and reason
Estimator: It is a rule that tells you how to calculate the estimate based on the sample.
Parameter space: The set of all possible value is called parameter space.
Unbiasedness: An estimator Tn=T(x1, x2,,xn) is said to be an unbiased estimator of γ(θ) if E(Tn)=γ(θ) for all θΘ
Baisedness: An estimator Tn=T(x1, x2,,xn) is said to be an unbiased estimator of γ(θ) if E(Tn)γ(θ) for all θΘ
Fundamentals
The formula for sample mean is,
x=xn
The formula for sample variance is,
s2=1ni=1n(xix)2
S2=1n1i=1n(xix)2
The formula for standard deviation is,
s=s2
Step 2
From the known information sample median, ranges and standard deviation are biased estimators.
The sample mean, variance and the proportion are unbiased estimators of population parameters.
Step 2
From the known information E(x)=μ, E(p^)=p and E(s2)=σ2. So, the unbiased estimators are sample mean, variance and the proportion.
Sample variance used to estimate a population variance.
Sample proportion used to estimate a population proportion.
Sample mean used to estimate a population mean.
The sample variance is an unbiased estimator of population variance. The sample proportion is an unbiased estimate of the population proportion and the sample mean is an unbiased estimate of the population mean.

 An underground military installation is fortified to the extent that it can withstand up to three 
direct hits from air-to-surface missiles and still function. Suppose an enemy aircraft is armed 
with missiles, each having a 30 % chance of scoring a direct hit. 
i. What is the probability that the installation will be destroyed with the seventh missile fired
is obtained by fewer than nine air strikes? 
ii. Find the expected air-to-surface missiles strike.
