## Homework Statement

I know that Minitab/ R/ SAS can easily generate random samples for know distributions - normal, exponential, uniform. But how can I generate a random sample from a known probability distribution (that is not listed)?

## Homework Equations

The probability distribution is rather simple: f(x) = 2x^-3

So, how can I generate a random sample of X's that come from this distribution?
