(since probability cannot be negative) increasing from the point (y,F(y))=(0,0) to (y,F(y))=(2,1). Specifically, F(y)=0.5y in the range (0,2). If y<0, F(y)=0 and if y>2, F(y)=1. (c)Find the following: P(Y<0.8); P(Y≤0.8); P(0.5<Y<1.5) from both the density function and the cumulative probability function and show that your answers match whichever you use. 00.10.20.30.40.50.600.511.52f(y)yUniform density for random number generation
