Find fX(x) and fY (y) for each of the following joint pdfs.

(a) fX,Y (x, y) = xy, 0 ≤ x ≤ 2, 0 ≤ y ≤ 1.

(b) fX,Y (x, y) = 2/5 (2x + 3y), 0 ≤ x ≤ 1, 0 ≤ y ≤ 1.


Expert Answer

Step 1


Provided joint pdf of (X, Y) is

fxy (x,y) ,0x< 2,0 < y <1 The marginal pdf of X can be calculated as: fx(x)=fx(x.y)dy x = x 2 2

Step 2

Similarly, marginal pdf of Y can be calculated as:
