    Looking to see how the answer is derived.
    Suppose that X and Y are independent each with exponential distribution with parameter = 3. Joint Density Function = 9(e^-3x)x(e^-3y) for x>0 and y>0.

    Find (a) P(X + 2Y <,= 2);
    (b) P(X + Y <,= 2); and
    (c) P(X - Y <,= 2).

    <,= represents less than, equal to.
