1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
Let the random variables X and Y have the joint p.m.f.:
f(x,y) = (x+y)/32 x=1,2, y=1,2,3,4.
find the means [tex]\mu[/tex]x and [tex]\mu[/tex]y, the variances [tex]\sigma[/tex]2x and [tex]\sigma[/tex]2y, and the correlation coefficient [tex]\rho[/tex].
2. Relevant equations
3. The attempt at a solution
I was able to find both [tex]\mu[/tex]'s:
and both variances:
But I cant seem to find how to get the covariance...I tried just using the 1 and 2 values for x and y, but it hasn't worked. I think I'm getting confused because there are more y values than x values. Any help would be much appreciated!

do you knw the formula for covariance?
you will need to calculate 2x4 terms, one for each x & y outcome
