i have two random variables x e y independent and they're uniform on the interval [0, 1] find cumulative distribution function of Z= (x+y)/(x-y)

i just try to solve...

Z seems to range from -infinity to infinity, this doesn't look good.

AS z approaches infinity this goes to -1/2.

I was playing around with a change of variables with W=X-Y

The joint density of Z and W would be w/2, but the region is 0<w(z+1)<2 and 0<w(z-1)<2 - December 5th 2010, 06:30 AMulissess
why the range is [-oo; +oo]? the variables are uniform in [0,1]... i just try the change of variables

what's the range of this function??
