(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Suppose {Y1,......Yn} are random samples from U(-1,1) distribution. Find the density of V=(2Y1+1)^2

2. Relevant equations

Method of transformations for random variables

3. The attempt at a solution

I started this problem off by letting X=2Y1+1 because i figured i could find the density of that and then just find the density of V=X^2. I thought i had the problem right but when i went back to the density i got for X=2Y1+1 and integrated it over the interval, it didnt add up to 1. Not sure what i did wrong
