    Monte Carlo Simulation Discussion

    Suppose we have a "black box" which on command can generate the value of a gamma random variable with parameters 1.5 and 1. Explain how we can use this black box to approximate E[exp(x)/(x+1)], where x is an exponential random variable with mean 1.

    I think it can be solved by importance sampling.
