The random variable X is exponential with parameter λ=1 . The random variable Y is defined by Y=g(X)=1/(1+X) .

a) The inverse function h , for which h(g(x))=x , is of the form ay^b+c . Find a , b , and c .

b) For y∈(0,1] , the PDF of Y is of the form fY(y)=y^a*e^((b/y)+c) . Find a , b , and c .

  1. h(x) = 1/x - 1 = (1-x)/x
    so, ...

  2. so yes h(x) = 1/x - 1 = (1-x)/x
    but what do you do then?
    derivative of (1-x)/x = -1/x^2
