Suppose a random variable X has a cumulative distribution function given by
F(a) = {0 for a<0, 1/2 for 0<=a<1, 3/5 for 1<=a<2, 4/5 for 2<=a<3,
9/10 for 3<=a<3.5, 1 for 3.5<=a.
a. Find the probability mass function for X.
b. Find the probability that a given observation of the value of X is greater than or equal to 1.5.
