2.34. Probability integral transformation. Consider a random variable X with cumulative function Fx(x), 0-x-00, Now define a new random variable U to be a particular function of X, namely, U = Fx(X) For example, if FX(x)-1-e-Ax, then U = 1-e-Ax = g(X). Show [at least for reasonably smooth Fx(x)] that the random variable U has a constant density function on the interval O to 1 and is zero elsewhere.
