Continuous joint random variablesWatch

This question has me stumped. I hope someone can at least point me in the right direction:

QUESTION: Two continuous random variables X and Y have joint probability density function given by:

fX,Y(x,y)= x(x+cy) 0<x<1, 0<y<2, 0 otherwise;

a) Find the value of c (I got c=1/3 for this part).

b) Find the marginal density of X and find P(X>1/2) (I got 2x^2+(2/3)x for the marginal density, and P(X>1/2)=5/6).

d) Find P(Y<X) (or this one)

Any help is appreciated

P(Y < 1/2 | X < 1/2) = P(Y<1/2 and X<1/2) / P(X<1/2).

For P(Y < X) work out what the region where Y<X is and integrate f(x, y) over that region.

How does one identify this region? Thanks for your quick response earlier

Draw the graph Y=X, with appropriate limits and shade the desired region. Et voila.
