Distribution of minimum of random variables

  1. Sep 28, 2005 #1
    anyone's help would be really appreciated. I cant figure out that one.

    If X and Y are joint random variables, what is the joint distribution funtion of U=min(X,Y) and V=max(X,Y).

    I got something like 2[u(v-u) + ½u^2)]

    then how do i worked towards and expression for the marginal distribution of U and V?
