The function fx(x) is defined differently for the range 0 to 1 as for values greater than one to 2.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Past x = 2, the function is zero.

When you are asked to find the expected value or variable how are the multiple ranges is all treated ?

Do you need to add both functions together and calculate the expected value using the two functions ?

Does the zero mean that the function has converged ? Do all of these probability like equations need to converge to be valid ?
