Let X1, X2,..., Xn be a random sample from U(-θ,θ), θ > 0. a) Find the maximum likelihood estimator of θ. Answer is Max|x|) however suppose if we have situation where situation is x = -7, 6 then will -7 be the MLE of θ.

d) Using the data below compute ML estimate moments estimate of θ. Redo your question assuming -θ+1/2

How to solve after assuming new condition and professor said that its a Indicator random variable question.
