Density of continuous random variables?

  1. Nov 3, 2013 #1
    Can you please help me find the density of the following functions?

    The density of an absolutely continous random variable X is:

    fX(x) =
    { (3x^2-1)/12 if 1<x<2
    { 1/2 if 2<x<3
    { 0 elsewhere

    Find the density of Y where Y = 4X-2
    Find the density of M where M = (X-2)^2


    Thank you!
