I think you know the basic integration steps. So I am avoiding the integration steps

Solution

9. a. Given , 0 < x < y , 0 < y <1

The given range can be combined and written in the form 0 < x < y < 1.

To find the marginal density of X (or Y) , integrate f (x,y) w.r.t Y (or X). (Note that range of integration should be taken from the combined range whenever x and y simultaneously included in the integration)

The marginal densities is given by,

= 2 (1-x) , 0 < x < 1

= 2y , 0 < y < 1

The ...
