Continuous Probability Distribution Question

  1. Jan 25, 2012 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

    2. Relevant equations



    3. The attempt at a solution

    I can show the second one, i.e. 1/3 [sqrt(y) +1] and need help in showing the first one. Can anyone guide me?

    For what values of X is Y ≤ y when 0<y<1?

    Every value X takes on corresponds to some value of Y, so a range of values for Y corresponds to some set of values for X. If you know that 0≤Y≤y where y≤1, what do you know about the possible values of X?

    It may help you to look at a plot of Y vs. X.
