a)let X be continuous random variable.Compute the c.d.f. and the density of x b)Let X be a continuouse nonegative random varible with density function fX?Caculate the density of Y=X^n c)Let X be uniform on (0,1) and K>0. caculate the density of Y=(1/K)*log(1X) can someone help me to solve it , i know it is simple

Correct me if I'm wrong, but don't you need to know the p.d.f. of X before you can answer (a)?
