## Homework Statement

Let [itex]X_1, X_2[/itex] have the joint pdf [itex]h(x_1, x_2) = 8x_1x_2, 0<x_1<x_2<1 [/itex], zero elsewhere. Find the joint pdf of [itex]Y_1=X_1/X_2[/itex] and [itex]Y_2=X_2[/itex].

## Homework Equations

[tex]p_Y(y_1,y_2)=p_X[w_1(y_1,y_2),w_2(y_1,y_2)][/tex] where [itex]w_i[/itex] is the inverse of [itex]y_1=u_1(x_1,x_2)[/itex]

## The Attempt at a Solution

We can get [itex]X_1=Y_1Y_2[/itex] and [itex]X_2=Y_2[/itex]. Naively plugging in [itex]y[/itex], we can get [itex]8y_1y_2^2[/itex]. However this isn't right according to the back of the book.

I thought it might have to do with finding the marginal distributions of [itex]x_1, x_2[/itex], but that doesn't seem to lead me anywhere either. Any thoughts welcome!
