Question Help plz! Given pdf to estimate prob. of small interval

From an online study material, an example question under Age-At-Death RV.

An age-at-death random variable is modeled by an exponential random variable
with PDF f(x) = 0.34e^0.34x; x >= 0. Use the given PDF to estimate
Pr(1 < X < 1:02).

The answer is just one line:
Pr(1 < X < 1.02)  0.02*f(1) = 0.005

Could anyone tell me how this is derived???


BTW it's interesting that exam MLC has been revised for several times, from pencil & paper MC to almost CBT, and now it contains both MC and WA.
