hi, since the formula you given in Transforming random Variables, variance^2=b^2variancex^2, why in example 4 we add on A^2?

You need to find the difference that is asked for in the problem. In example 2 it was not specifically specified so you can do either, you just have to specify in your answer which you are subtracting from the other.

hi, i wanna ask in the example  2 , why the different in height is U(w-m), not U(m-w) , because if we do it in U(m-w) we will get a positive number. So i want to ask when we doing this kind of problems , what should we pick first , the bigger number or the smaller number?
