Let X be the sin of the angle theta in radians chosen uniformly from (-pi/2,pi/2). Find the mean and variance of X. HINT: X = sin(theta). Specify the support of X and check to see if your result describes a p.d.f.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Anyone got any idea's? I managed to solve the majority of other problems and don't even know where to begin this one. Thanks for any help.
