Step 1
Here, X and Y are independent, continuous random variables.
So, it can be written as: f(x,y) = f(x) f(y)
It is given that,
\(f_{X}(x)=\begin{cases}\frac{2}{x^{2}},\ x>2\\0,\ otherwise \end{cases}\)
\(f_{Y}(y)=\begin{cases}\frac{2}{y^{2}},\ y>2\\0,\ otherwise \end{cases}\)
Step 2
(a) The joint probability density function can be obtained as:
\(f_{XY}(x,y)=f_{X}(x)f_{Y}(y)\)
\(=\frac{2}{x^{2}}\times \frac{2}{y^{2}}\)
\(=\frac{4}{(xY)^{2}}\)
Thus,
\(f_{XY}(x,y)=\begin{cases}\frac{4}{(xy)^{2}},\ x>2, y>2\\0,\ otherwise\end{cases}\)
Step 3
(b)The probability density function of W=XY is same as probability density function of f(x,y).
\(f_{W}(w)=f_{XY}(x,y)=\begin{cases}\frac{4}{(xy)^{2}},\ x>2, y>2\\0, \ otherwise\end{cases}\)
0
