IF are independent continuous random variables with distributions.how can I calculate . I tried using this concept from the independence and conditional distribution: is this correct?

Thank you so much. I have one more thing to ask. The second integral has limit going from -infinity to x. Is it because we are finding P(X>Y)?
because y is bounded above by x, this is just basic calculus

I tried using this concept from the independence and conditional distribution: is this correct? but by symmetry and for any continuous distribution So the result follows without doing any integrals.

F(infty)=1 F(-infty)=0 those are really limits, but it's after 2AM
