 Part a.
Verify that is a pdf.

 First notice that for all
 Next show the integral over the whole number line equals one:
 Part b. Let .
 Probability is at most 200

 Probability is less than 200

 Probability is at least 200
 The probability is between 100 and 200 assuming .
 Give an expression for , i.e., define the cumulative distribution function.
