## Homework Statement

The question is

Let Y be a continuous random variable with pdf f_Y(y) = 3(1-y)^2

and I have to find P(|Y - 1/2| > 1/4)

## Homework Equations

Is there a formula involved here or something that can help me?

## The Attempt at a Solution

I'm not even sure how to find the probability of a pdf once it's given, is there a formula that I can use and plug the values in... I think it's more confusing that there is an inequality in the probability as well... any hints will be greatly appreciated
