    The uniform and its log

    Let U~uniform(0,1)
    (a) Show that both -logU and -log(1-U) are exponential random variables
    (b) Show that X=log(u/(1-u)) is a logistic(0,1) random variable
    (c) Show how to generate a logistic(m,b) random variable

    SAS or R programming can/should be used to complete.

    Hello,

    For the first question, use the cdf.
    But I don't know what a logistic rv is...
    Also, what have you tried ? Because you posted several threads without showing anything :|
