I am stuck on this first bit of a question:

The joint PDF of X and Y is given by

f(x, y) = cxe^{-x} x>0, |y|<x

(a) Determine the constant c.

I guess y takes values from -x to x because |y|< x ?

that cant be right if |Y|<x integrating from 0 to x leaves out half the values,

since |Y|<x

-x<y<x - Sep 30th 2010, 04:07 AMmr fantastic
