i have this question
image.png

i do find the distribution like this figure :
dis.png

and i plot the y like this:
g_x.png

now i want to find the distribution of y
i tried to take the distribution for each interval in Fx(x) like this :
image.png

but the solution in the book said :

Like the solution the book gave, the distribution definition, all the other relevant information: stuff like that.

firest i found the density of x which is Bernoulli trial :
PK=Cn(10,k) * p^k * q^(10-k) , k= 0,1,...,10
the distribution is a staircase of the density
which i sketch , the book solution is here :

p=q=0.5 because the coin is fair
where p is the probability of getting head , q is the probability of getting tail

So what are you trying to do? Are you trying to figure out whether you think a coin is fair given a number of tosses for heads and tails?
