    Basically you find all the combinations of what X1 and X2 could be that satisfy the inequality (i.e. they have to be more than 1, but equal to 3 or less), then you add up the probabilites of the combinations occurring:

    Combinations of (X1,X2) are (0,3) (0,2) (1,1) (1,2) (2,1) (3,0) & (2,0)


    Spoiler:

    k = 0.25, probabilities of 0 = 0.5, 1=0.25, 2= 0, 3 =0.25... so use the AND rule for probabilities to the combinations above

    I'm pretty sure there's no "inequality" as such for X_1 + X_2, combinations like (3,2) and (1,3) etc should still be possible.

    In that case you just need to find the combinations of what X1 + X2 could be:

    It's best to be logical about it:

    0 = (0,0)

    1 = (0,1) + (1,0)

    2 = (2,0) + (0,2) + (1,1)

    3 = (0,3) + (3,0) + (1,2) + (2,1)

    4 = (1,3) + (3,1) + (2,2)

    5 = (2,3) + (3,2)

    6 = (3,3)
