I have question regarding the gamma distribution when using
alpha <- 3 beta <- 3 x <- rgamma(n = 100, shape = alpha, scale = 1/beta) fitdistr(x,"gamma"
I get shape to 3.9 and rate to 3.4.
Are the rate=beta or is the rate=theta? What is the difference between scale and rate? Note: I did not understood what they said on Wiki
