Probability density function question?

1. Suppose that the probability density function (p.d.f.) of the lifetime (in days) of a particular type of component is (see attachment).
(a) What is the expected lifetime of a component?
(b) Compute the standard deviation of the lifetime of a component?
(c) Compute the probability a component will fail in less than 365 days.
(d) Determine P (Y ≤ 365) and compare it to the answer in part (c).
