    Distribution of a function of random variables problem




    First off, I'm new to this forum and Probability and Statistics. I'm a junior in college and currently taking my first course in this subject and find it quite challenging. Any hints or advice on what steps I should take to answer this question will be greatly appreciated.

    The question:

    A uniform random number X divides [0,1] into two segments. Let R be the ratio of the smaller versus the larger segment. Compute the density of R.
