How would you work out E[XY] where X,Y are(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); dependant variablesin a Joint Distribution.

I know there is a relationship with the conditional distributions but I can't understand the logic behind it, hence am hoping someone here can give me directions to work out this expectation.(I don't just want a formulae, I want the idea behind it)
