Let X and Y be independent random variables deﬁned on the space Ω, with density functions fx(x)nd fy(y), respectively. Suppose Z = X + Y. Find the density fz(Z) if fx(x)=fy(z)= \begin{cases} X/2, & \text{if 0<$x$<2,} \\ 0, & \text{otherwise.} \end{cases} attempt: I tried to take the integral $$\int_{∞}^{+∞}((zy)/2)*(y/2)\,dx,$$, then I got $$\int_{∞}^{+∞}((zy)/4)(y^2/4)\,dx,$$, unfortunately I was unable to figure this out Last edited by poopeyey2; July 24th, 2017 at 01:25 PM.

Your integral limits should not be infinite. What should your limits be? If $f_Y(y)$ is 0 outside $(0,2)$, what does this mean for your limits?
