X has a uniform distribution of [0,1](adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Y = h(x) = max(X,1-X)

question: pdf is what?

i think it is (x-a)/(B-A) = x , so for

pdf = x for x>0.5 and 1-x for x<0.5,

then part b is median, and part c is expected value and variance.

This is not a homework, but this is on a review sheet.
