    This is something that I have always been confused about, although I think it's pretty easy. How do you go about working out the +C part when intergrating a pdf that does not start at 0?

    I haven't done stats in a while, but if I remember rightly then you integrate the pdf to get the cumulative distribution function so at the last value of x you need the cdf to be 1 so you get the constant from there

    Yes thank you, that seems to work... I have seen that there are quite a few methods of doing this...but this seems to be the easisest by far...
