Given the probability distribution: p (x) = ax^n ,0 ≤ x ≤1, for a positive integer n What does it mean to normalize p(x) and how would I develop an expression for "a" that normalizes p(x)? Thank you in advance.

Thank you in advance. Find the value of $\displaystyle a$ such that $\displaystyle \int_{0}^1 a x^n \, dx = 1$.
That's a Beta by the way.
