# Math Help - Determining the marginal prior density

1. ## Determining the marginal prior density

Given (mu,tau)~normal-gamma(2.7,1.08,4,0.2916)

I have worked out the posterior distribution to be
(mu,tau)~normal-gamma(2.47,28.08,17.5,0.42)

From this i have also worked out the means and standard deviations.

I am asked to determine the marginal prior and posterior densities for sigma(which is 1/(square root tau)) and I have to use the theory

f(y)=f(g^-1(y)) d/dy (g^-1(y))

I'm not quite sure how to start.

Do I start with the marginal prior density for the marginal tau~(17.5,0.42)?

Many Thanks

2. your posterior dist is wrong, i think it should be 1.44 instead of 0.42
