Calculate the marginal probability distribution function of X given joint pdf

f(x,y) = 15x^2 y for 0 <= x <= y <= 1

f(x,y) = 0 otherwise

2. Relevant equations

f_x (x) = integral of f(x,y) dy

3. The attempt at a solution

I've got no idea what the bounds are for this integral.

Also, would it be easier to do it in polar coordinates?
