I need some help on this question:
We have that X1 and X2 are independent random variables. They each have the same probability density, f(x) = 4(x)^3 for 0<x<1 and 0 otherwise.
We are also given that Y1 and Y2 are random variables defined as Y1=X1(X2)^0.5 and Y2=X2(X1)^0.5.
The question is to find the joint density of Y1 and Y2, and their joint densities.
I found the joint density to be (64(Y1)^5/3 (Y2)^5/3)/3. However, my problem is that I'm not sure how to find the regions where the density is applicable (i.e like 0<x<1) for the initial density function. I
I've tried subbing in expressions for X1 and X2 in terms of Y1 and Y2 into 0<X1<1 and 0<X2<1 but this seems to arrive at a contradiction as I get 0<Y1<(Y2)^0.5 and 0<Y2<(Y1)^0.5. Could anyone help me out please?
