The question asks for the expected value of the squares of X and Y.

I am having trouble visualizing what such a distribution would look like. Apparently it is triangular shaped... but I do not see it. Can anyone help?

Thanks in advance...

just integrate,

you will get:

[tex]E[X^2]=L^2/6[/tex]

[tex]E[Y^2]=L^2/2[/tex]

you will get:

[tex]E[X^2]=L^2/6[/tex]

[tex]E[Y^2]=L^2/2[/tex]
