Write in symbols the negation of the theorem stated in part a.

part a:We immediately see that if g(x) is a nonnegative continuous function whose integral is finite, then there exists an a>0 such that a*g(x) is a continuous probability distribution (take a=1/[tex]\int g(x)dx[/tex] from -[tex]\infty[/tex] to [tex]\infty[/tex]).

The negation of P implies Q is equivalent to not P or Q.

The issue is with the P part.

Is ~P= g(x) isn't a nonnegative continuous fuction whose integral isn't finite?

I am not sure if both is parts need to be negated or just one.

Then for the Q part it is just itself starting with the existential quantifier.
