Continuous random variable X has probability density function defined as

f(x)= 1/4 , -1<x<3

=0 , otherwise

Continuous random variable Y is defined by Y=X^2

Find G(y), the cummulative distribution function of Y

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

G(y) = P(-sqrt(y)<=X<=sqrt(y))

What does this mean? G(Y) is defined as P(-sqrt(y)<=X<=sqrt(y)) for 0<=X<=9 ?
