Abstract : A recent paper by Feldman and Fox (1968) discussed the estimation of the parameter n in the binomial distribution when the other parameter p is known. This paper gives a Bayesian treatment of the problem both when p is known and when p is unknown. The Bayesian approach is a very practical one and is especially easy to apply in small problems because less computing is involved. It also does not require any appeal to asymptotic distributional results. (Author)
