(a) how can you show the joint p.m.f. of X and Y on the sample space of X and Y? I have drawn a table and labeled the axis accordingly, and matched up each sum and computed the sum at their intersection?

(b) How could one compute the marginal p.m.f.’s?

(c) and are X and Y independent? Reasons? I wrote yes but I'm not sure why.

Any help is appreciated thank you very much.
