Suppose that the random variables X and Y have joint p.d.f. f ( x , y ) given by f ( x , y ) = C x 2 y , 0 < x < y , x + y < 2. a) Sketch the support of ( X , Y ). b) What must the value of C be so that f ( x , y ) is a valid joint p.d.f.? Must have ( ) & & -- dy dx y x f , = 1. & & - 1 2 2 dx dy y x x x C = & =- = 1 2 2 2 2 dx y x x y x y C = ( ) [ ] & -- 1 2 2 2 2 2 dx x x x C = ( ) &- 1 3 2 2 2 dx x x C C = 1 4 3 2 3 2 - x x C C = 6 C = 1.
