hi everyone,
I'm still a newbie in statistics,

I have a question about beta distribution, that is,

On the ref/tutorials I've found on the net, why beta distribution always have value p(x) more than 1?
As I know, any probability density function always have value not more than 1?

is there any one who can explain to me, I'm not statistics people, but I need to code that needing some of this distribution function.

thx before
