Step 1

Hello there!There are more than 3 subparts mentioned in the question. I can answer only 3 subparts in the question according to our policies. Please find the solution of a,b,c

Given that a density curve has a line segment joining (0,1) and (0.5,1) and the segment connecting (0.5,1) to x axis, as shown below

Here in the graph we can see that the line drawn from (0.5,1) to x axis meet the x axis at x = 0.5. 

The coordinate point is (0.5,0) where the second segment crosses x axis.

Step 2

The two pints on the second segement are (0.5,1) and (0.5,0).

The slope between any two points(x1,y1) (x2,y2) can be found out by given formula as shown below and by plug in the given two data point...
