Suppose X,Y has joint density f X,Y ( x,y ) = ( 1 9 (3-x )(2-y ) if 0 x 3 and 0 y 2, otherwise. a. Are X and Y independent? Why or why not? b. Find the density f X ( x ) of X . c. Find the density f Y ( y ) of Y . 5 6. Design your own problem and solution. Create your own problem about a pair of jointly-distributed continuous random variables X and Y that may or may not be indepen-dent. State whether they are independent or dependent, and then calculate their densities f X ( x ) and f Y ( y ). 6...
