Then √ √ FY (y) = P (Y ≤ y) = P (X 2 ≤ y) = P (X ≤ y) = FX ( y). Differentiation yields 1 1 √ fY (y) = fX ( y) √ = √ , 2 y 2 y (and fY (y) = 0 otherwise). 2. Let X ∈ U (0, 1), and put Y = − log X. Then FY (y) = P (Y ≤ y) = P (− log X ≤ y) = P (X ≥ e−y ) = 1 − FX (e−y ) = 1 − e−y , y > 0, which we recognize as F Exp(1) (y) (or else we obtain fY (y) = e−y , for y > 0, by differentiation and again that Y ∈ Exp(1)). 3. Let X have an arbitrary continuous distribution, and suppose that g is a differentiable, strictly increasing function (whose inverse g −1 thus exists uniquely).

Determine the distribution of X + Y + Z. 34. Suppose that X, Y , and Z are random variables with a joint density 2 f (x, y, z) = ce−(x+y) , 0, for − ∞ < x < ∞, 0 < y < 1, otherwise. Determine the distribution of X + Y . 27 28 1 Multivariate Random Variables 35. Suppose that X and Y are random variables with a joint density f (x, y) = c (1+x−y)2 , when 0 < y < x < 1, 0, otherwise. Determine the distribution of X − Y . 36. Suppose that X and Y are random variables with a joint density f (x, y) = c · cos x, 0, when 0 < y < x < otherwise.

2) 24 1 Multivariate Random Variables where, for k = 1, 2, . . , m, (h1k , h2k , . . , hnk ) is the inverse corresponding to the mapping from Sk to T and Jk is the Jacobian. 6 in light of this formula shows that the result there corresponds to the partition S = (R =) S1 ∪ S2 ∪ {0}, where S1 = (0, ∞) and S2 = (−∞, 0) and also that the first term in the right-hand side there corresponds to S1 and the second one to S2 . The fact that the value at a single point may be arbitrarily chosen takes care of fY (0).
