    Support of a Distribution?




    Does the support of a distribution change? For example lets say Y~Beta(20,30) the support is from 0 to . However what would the support be for 3Y+2? would it still be 0 to 1 ?

    What happens if X is uniform(0,1) and Y=X+2. You can try to draw the density of Y and X to find out?

    Consider the most degenerate case. A distribution with 100% of it's probability at a single point. So let's say X only takes the value 1. So the support of X is {1}. Does the support change if we look at 3*X + 2 instead?
    I don't have emotions and sometimes that makes me very sad.
