Function of random variable- discrete case Example. Let X be uniform on the 19 integers {- 9 , - 8 ,..., 8 , 9 } (i.e. P ( X = k ) = 1 / 19 for - 9 k 9.) Problem 1 . Find P ( X 2 5).

Continuous r.v.s. - Question: If X has density f X and Y = g ( X ), then what is the density function of Y ? Method : Use Distribution functions. Step 1. Determine values of Y . Step 2. Write cdf of Y : F Y ( y ) = P ( Y y ) = P ( X some interval A y ) = R A y f ( x ) dx ; calculate. Step 3.
