Let Î» > 0 and let X be a random variable with the probability density function f ( x ) = 1 Î» Î» + x , x > 1, zero otherwise. Let W = ln ( X ). What is the probability distribution of W ? w = ln ( x ) x = g â€“ 1 ( w ) = e w dw dx = e w x > 1 â‡’ w > 0 f W ( w ) = f X ( g â€“ 1 ( w ) ) dw dx = 1 Î» Î» w w e e â‹… + = w e Î» Î»- , w > 0.

W has Exponential distribution with mean 1 / Î» . 2. Let X be a Uniform ( 0, 1 ) and Y be a Uniform ( 0, 3 ) independent random variables. Let W = X + Y. Find and sketch the p.d.f. of W.
