## Main Question or Discussion Point

I hav a random variable X which is gamma-distributed with scale θ and shape k, i-e

X ~ gamma(k,θ);

Now I have another variable, Y= 1+X, is Y gamma-ditributed? if yes what will be the scale and shape parametrs for Y, and what will be the expression for the probability density function of Y.

Please help

Thanks in advance
