I have this equation
I want to take the derivative and let it equal to zero to find out p, which should be 1/n as a result!
I could get the derivative for this equation manually and using MATLAB, the result is:
dydp = n*(1 - p)^(n - 1) - n*p*(n - 1)*(1 - p)^(n - 2))
However, I couldn't solve it as the way mentioned above to find p!
p = 1/n, i could do it manually. How can i find it using MATLAB??
