IS 0<x<1? If so, this is a Beta rv. AND why don't you show your 'steps'?

AND why don't you show your 'steps'? the range is not given ...... so i let the density function = K(1-x)^4 ,(where K is a constant) and integrate it from -∞ to ∞, which is supposed to be equal to 1. however, the result is undecisive after the integration, so i cant find the constant K....
You need to know the support and I'd bet it's 0<x<1. The support is not all Reals.
