LetF(x)[itex]=\begin{cases}

.25e^{x} & -\infty<x<0\\

.5 & 0\leq x\leq1\\

1-e^{-x} & 1<x<\infty\end{cases}$. Find a CDF of discrete type,F_d(x)and of continuous type,F_c(x)and a number 0<a<1 such thatF(x)=aF_d(x)+(1-a)F_c(x)

[/itex]

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

don't really have any idea of where to begin. i have the answers in the book. any hint would be greatly appreciated.
