I see someone has edited your post so I'm not 100% sure what you originally said.. that is not your fault, I think someone is trying to help you format it correctly.

But yes, you're right, you need to find
($P( 0.75 < X \leq 3)$)

Do you know how to solve it from there? no worries if you don't. (I dropped a very subtle hint in my earlier post where I've turned it into the form )
