    simple integration

    given that f(y1,y2) = exp (-(y1+y2)) where y1 and y2 are greater than 0. find P(Y1<1, Y2>5)..

    i know that i need to use the double integral but im unable to determine the range that i should integrate it under..can someone please teach me a method where i can find out the range?

    thanks

    P(Y_1<1, Y_2>5)=\int_{y_1=0}^1 \int_{y_2=5}^{\infty} f_{Y_1,Y_2}(y_1,y_2)\; dy_2 dy_1

    But you said in another thread that you have studied double integration. You need to go back and thoroughly review that material because all these types of questions depend on it.
