let x be a random variable with density function

f(x)= $\frac{2\theta x + 1}{\theta + 1}$ if $0\le x \le 1$,$\theta$ > -1 and 0 otherwise

consider the problem of testing $H0 :\theta \le 1 $ $ $ $ against $ $H1:$ $\theta >1 $

let $\phi$ be the test function given by $\phi(x)$ = 1 if x $\ge$ $\frac{\sqrt{9-8\alpha}\ -1}{2}$ and 0 otherwise then we have to prove that $\phi$ is UMP size $\alpha $ test

what i tried :

first i checked the monotone likelihood ratio and infered that UMP will exist ,.,., till then it was OK

now for $\phi$ to be UMP size $\alpha $ test we must have E ( $\phi$(x) ) under H0 = $\alpha$

[rest is shown in the image] [enter image description here]1

after this i am stuck , i have rechecked my integration it seems to be correct any suggestions / corrections please

    $\begingroup$ Could you please learn mathjax and replace the scanned formulas with typed formulas, that is, with $\LaTeX$? $\endgroup$ – kjetil b halvorsen Jan 7 '17 at 16:22

    $\begingroup$ Since this looks like homework add the self study tag. $\endgroup$ – Michael Chernick Jan 7 '17 at 19:45

    $\begingroup$ You haven't yet used the hypothesis, which suggests plugging in $\theta=1$. The integration isn't quite correct: double-check the signs and the constant term in the numerator. $\endgroup$ – whuber Jan 7 '17 at 23:18
