* Suppose X has the pdf f(x)=(1/2)e^-|x| if -∞<x<∞

a)find the pdf of Y=|X|^3

b) Let W=0 if x<=0 and W=1 if x>1. Find cdf (!@#\$%^&.dist.func) of W.

For t∈R, define the following two functions: f1(t)=12π−−√exp(−max(1,t2)2) and f2(t)=12π−−√exp(−min(1,t2)2). In this problem, we explore whether these functions are valid probability density functions. Determine
