CDF Issue

  1. Oct 26, 2008 #1
    Assuming i have plotted my pdf and cdf functions which lie in the interval [-1, 1] what does P[[tex]\left|X-0.5|[/tex]<0.25] imply? The part i am not clear on is the [tex]\left|X-0.5|[/tex] part. Please clear me out on this

    |X-0.5|<0.25 simply means 0.25<X<0.75.
