1. ## Simple question need answer #2

2. Given the density f(x,y)=2(x+y), 0<x<1, 0<y<x, calculate
a) P(X<0.5, Y<0.5)
b) P(X<0.5)
c) P(Y<0.5)

Thanks~

2. 2a)

$
\int_{0}^{a}\int_{0}^{x}2\cdot(x+y)\;dy\;dx\;=\;\f rac{1}{2}
$

Solve for 'a'.

3. ## what's the difference between 2a and 2b?

what's the difference between 2a and 2b in this case?

a. $\int_{x = 0}^{x = 1/2}\int_{y = 0}^{y = x}2 \cdot (x+y)\; dy \; dx$

b. Same as above.

c. $\int_{y = 0}^{y = 1/2}\int_{x = y}^{x = 1}2 \cdot (x+y)\; dx \; dy$

In each case it helps to draw the required region of integration to get the integral terminals.

So, I'm just making up my own problems, today. Sorry about that.

It's a good question though

2b or not 2b
