expected value of jointly distributed varaibles

See attached file for full problem description. No. 4 only

If the joint density function of X and Y is given by
f(x,y) = 2(x + 2y)/7, 0 <x < 1, 1 < y < 2

Find the expected value of g(X, Y) = x^2/Y^3 + XY^2


Solution Summary

The solution shows detailed calculation of the expected value of g(X, Y), where X and Y are two jointly distributed random variables.
