Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am trying to understand how to predict the distribution of a variable that is a combination of other random variables. For example, how should I determine the distribution of Variable A, which is the sum of Variable X and Variable Y? Variable X has a normal distribution and Variable B has a uniform distribution.

Also, what will be the distribution of Variable B, which is a product of X and Y?

Thanks.
