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

The RV X has parameter p>0 and distribution:

f_{X}(x) = pxe^{-px}for x [tex]\geq[/tex] 0 and is 0 otherwise

(The subscript X is a capital letter, as is the X mentioned below in the e^{4X})

If we are to consider the RV D= e^{4X}, determine the range and distribution f_{D}(d)

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I found this question as an exercise in a textbook, but do not know how to answer it!

Does anyone have any suggestions that I can try out please?
