given

a signal x, is a random variable which is expontential with a mean of 3. it is transmitted through an additive gaussian noise channel, where the gaussian noise has a mean of -2 and a variance of 3. the signal and noise are independent.

Find an expression for the CDF (conditional density function) of the signal given the observation of the output. fx(x|y)

what i think...

from bayes theorem i know:

fx(x|y) = fx(y|x)*fx(x) / fy(y)

assuming:

output = y

noise = n

input = x

y = n+x

how do i find fx(y|x) ?

the only info i have are the probability density function's for x and n

also every attempt at convoluting the exponential with the guassian (to find y) has failed whether by hand, calculator, or matlab
