Hi all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I am currently doing my Final Year Project on the topic of Optimal Placement of Suicide Bomber Detectors.

Given 2 dependent bomb detectors, I am trying to prove that the probability of detection in the intersected area will be larger than the individually covered areas, by working along the lines of jointly distributed discrete random variables and also joint probability mass functions.

Any suggestions on how to work on this? Thank you, and apologies if my question is not clear.
