If X has an exponential distribution with the parameter θ, use the distribution function technique to find the probability density of the random variable Y=ln(x) .
Thank you for any help !

FIRST of all you need to write down your exponential density.
There are two ways of writing it, so you need to be clear.
Then find the cdf and substitute the new rv.
What I did until now was
and then I was stuck

I need to know how you write YOUR exponential.
IT makes a diference, one is the reciprocal of the other.
I found exactly the same thing as you in your previous post ( after a few steps)...
