A certain density curve looks like an interverted letter V. The first segment goes fro the point (0,0.6) to the point (0.5,1.4). The segment goes from (0.5.1.44) to (1,0.6).

(a) Sketch the curve. Verify that the area under the curve is 1, so that it is a valid density.

-- Okay, I tried graphing that on my calculator and it came out looking weird... my highest bar on the histogram is 3. How do you verfiy the area under the curve? And how am I suppose to determine the median ? Do I use ALL of those numbers?

Please help and thank you!
