My Math Forum Discrete Bivariate Random Vectors

Obtain the joint probability mass function of (X,Y). So I am confused on how to do the probabilities since it is a biased experiment. My professor taught us how to do it for two fair tetrahedra but when I do the same method except with the biased probabilities I can't seem to get anything right. How exactly do you do this?
