    The CDF function of min {I/x, P} . y

    Hello everyone,

    I have faced a difficult function of two random variables. The problem is described as follows.

    Given two independent exponential random variables x and y, x \ge 0 and y \ge 0, with the corresponding PDF functions as {f_x}(x) and {f_y}(y). The random variable u = \min \{ \frac{I}{x},P\} \times y, where I and P are constants, has the CDF function written as:

    \Pr \{ u \le U\}  = \int\limits_{x = I/P}^\infty  \int\limits_{y = 0}^{x.U/I} {{f_x}(x){f_y}(y)dydx + } \int\limits_{x = 0}^{I/P} {} \int\limits_{y = 0}^{U/P} {{f_x}(x){f_y}(y)dydx}

    I cannot understand how the CDF of u is obtained as above. Can everyone give me some tips for solving the problem?. Thanks very much.
