P: 66
consider rolling a die.
S= {1,2,3,4,5,6}
P(s)=1/6 for all s in S
X= number on die so that X(s)=s for all s in S
Y= X^2
compute the cumulative distribution function Fy(y) = P(Y<=y), for all y in the set of real numbers.

My guess
for Y=1 i get
P(-inf<y<=1)=P(Y<=1)-P(Y<-inf)=Fx(1)-Fx(-inf)
= Fx(1)-0
= Fx(1)

Is this all I have to do for Y=1, or do I have to integrate, or is there anything wrong?
