STAT 410 Examples for 09/14/2011 Fall 2011 3. Consider two continuous random variables X and Y with joint p.d.f. f X, Y ( x , y ) = 60 x 2 y , x > 0, y > 0, x + y < 1, zero elsewhere. Consider W = X + Y. Find the p.d.f. of W, f W ( w ). - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - Fact: Let X and Y be continuous random variables with joint p.d.f.
