    For people with a certain disease, the length of time Y spent in remission is described by the following pdf

    f(y) = (1/9)y^2, 0<=y<=3

    where Y is measured in years.

    So, we have the pdf, (1/9) y^2, 0<=y<=3. To calculate probabilities from a pdf, we integrate. We are looking for the probability that remission lasts longer ...
