A snack food company markets cans of deluxe mixed nuts containing almonds, cashews, and peanuts. The net weight of each can is exactly 1 pound, but the weight contribution of each type of nut is random. Because the three weights sum to one, a joint pdf for any two of the three gives all necessary information about the third type. Let X = the weight of the almonds in a random can and Y = the weight of the cashews.
