Question

An instructor has given a short quiz consisting of two parts.
For a randomly selected student, let *X* = the number of
points earned on the first part and *Y* = the number of
points earned on the second part. Suppose that the joint pmf of
*X* and *Y* is given in the accompanying table.

A service station has both self-service and full-service
islands. On each island, there is a single regular unleaded pump
with two hoses. Let X denote the number of hoses being
used on the self-service island at a particular time, and let
Y denote the number of hoses on the full-service island in
use at that time. The joint pmf of X and Y
appears in the accompanying tabulation.
