Choosing me means your Probability of Success increases greatly :-)

So in order for it to be a probability density function, the area has to be equal to 1, so let's integrate this function for 0 to 2 and set it equal to 1:

f(x)=Cx^{9.5}, F(x)=Cx^{10.5}/10.5,

Now we plug in 2 for x and subtract when we plug in 1 for x

F(2)-F(1)=1; C/10.5*2^{10.5}-C/10.5*1^{10.5}=1, C(2^{10.5}-1)=10.5

**C=10.5/(2**^{10.5}**-1) or C=10.5/1447.15**

You did your integration incorrectly, add 1 to the exponent then divide by that newly increased exponent, also you can check your work by plugging that C into the equation and seeing if you get 1, yours gets about .00911/18/20
