Find the cumulative distribution and density of each of the variables.req ual (b) Y = |U − V |. Attempt: I used P (Y < or equal to y), I took the positive side of the absolute value and got P (U-V < or equal to y). Later I thought about isolating u to get P (U < or equal to y+V). Thus, J figured the cdf would be F (y)=y+V after using a theorem. However, it was wrong. How should I find the correct cdf?
