Consider the following probability distribution of a continuous random variable X that is symmetric around zero: PLEASE SEE ATTACHED JPEG a. Find the value of a, which is the value f(y) when y = 0. b. Find the value of b such that Prob(Y>b) = 0.05. c. Given your answer b to part (b), find Prob (Y > b) I'm sure this is pretty basic and I'm not so much looking for an answer as I am looking to learn how to understand this Thanks

update I may have solved for a. 1/2 (3 x A) = .5 A = 1/3 y/n?
