(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Let the independent random variables X1,X2,X3 have the same cdf F(x). Let Y be the middle value of X1,X2,X3. Determine the cdf of Y.

2. Relevant equations

F(x) = P(X<=x) = ∫-inf to x f(y)dy

3. The attempt at a solution

I don't understand the question, what does it exactly mean when Y is the middle value of X1,X2,X3? I'm not exactly sure where to start. Can somebody help?
