# Probability distribution of the product of three dependent random variables

Given the joint probability distribution for three dependent continuous random variables, I want to find the probability distribution for the product of these random variables.

I found this relevant question for two dependent variables.

I also found a question that deals with the case of three variables, but only in the special case where the variables are independent.

But what is the answer in case of three dependent continuous random variables?

Let's consider the distribution $$E$$ with $$e=abc$$, with $$A$$, $$B$$, $$C$$ being three dependent continuous random variables. Can we say that:

$$f_E(e) =∫^\infty_{−\infty}∫^\infty_{−\infty}f_{A,B,C}\left(a, b,\frac{e}{ab}\right) \space \frac{1}{|ab|} \space da \space db ?$$

First, construct the cdf, the $$P(x_1x_2x_3 < x)$$ with the triple integral $$\int_{-\infty}^{\infty} \int_{-\infty}^{\infty} \int_{-\infty}^{x/(x_2x_3)} J(x_1,x_2,x_3) dx_1dx_2dx_3$$ Then you can differentiate the cdf with respect to x to get the pdf.
