Hey, I've got this problem that I've been trying to crack for a while. I can't find any info for multi-variable expected values in my textbook, and I couldn't find a lot of stuff that made sense to me online. Here's the problem.

I tried to get the limits from the normal distributions that were given. If I was doing it right, I had

$90\leq X \leq 130 $

$1.9\leq Y \leq 2.9$

for X and Y.

I think my main problem is that I'm not sure how to get $f(x)$ and $f(y)$ so that I can use the property

$E(aX+bY) = aE(X)+bE(Y)$

and

$E(x) = \int_{n}^{m}x*f(x)dx$

where $n \leq f(x) \leq m$.

I think I might be able to figure it out once I can work out what the functions should be, but I'm a little stuck here. Any help would be awesome. Thanks.
