Condition that a Function Be a Probability Density Function

Problem 756

Let $c$ be a positive real number. Suppose that $X$ is a continuous random variable whose probability density function is given by
f(x) = \begin{cases}
\frac{1}{x^3} & \text{ if } x \geq c\\
0 & \text{ if } x < c. \end{cases} \end{align*} (a) Determine the value of $c$.

(b) Find the probability $P(X> 2c)$.
