Question: Findcdf(remember to consider all cases).

Answer:

:

Shouldn't that be it? What's with these next two cases if x and y are never greater than 1 and 2 respectively?

Do you have a typo?

It doesn't make sense that x is bounded above by 1

and x is larger than y

and yet you have 0<y<2

clearly y cannot pass 1. - Dec 10th 2009, 03:49 PMmr fantastic

Even with the correction, what is the point of these two cases. Why would I be finding equations for cases where x and y are greater than 1 and 2 if x only takes values between 0 and 1 and y only takes values between 0 and 2?

Do I*fundamentally misunderstand*this problem? - Dec 11th 2009, 01:20 PMmr fantastic

So from the beginning do I just integrate

to get . And then find:

for and

for and

for

(given above) for

Correct?
