Now ` 3 3 cx3 2 2 ϭ 9c 3Ϫ` f (x) dx ϭ 30 cx dx ϭ 3 0 and since this must equal 1, we have c ϭ 1 > 9. 2 2 1 x3 2 8 1 7 P(1 Ͻ X Ͻ 2) ϭ 3 x2 dx ϭ ϭ Ϫ ϭ 27 1 27 27 27 1 9 (b) In case f (x) is continuous, which we shall assume unless otherwise stated, the probability that X is equal to any particular value is zero.
