Consider the experiment of rolling two tetrahedra that are unfair in the sense that each has the following probabilities for each of the four faces:

P{1 dot}=1/10

P{2 dots}=2/10

P{3 dots}=3/10

P{4 dots}=4/10

Let X be the total of the outcomes in the two tetrahedra and Y be the absolute difference between their outcomes. Obtain the joint probability mass function of (X,Y).

So I am confused on how to do the probabilities since it is unfair and not fair. Help.

Here is the work I've done, I'm stuck and not really sure how to transform this into the joint probability mass function for (X,Y).

Sorry the photo's sideways, I tried rotating it but it wouldn't translate it into the post.
