comment What is the conditional mass function of $X$ given that $Y = i$?
That's what I found...stat.ucla.edu/~rosario/classes/081/100a-2a/100aHW7Soln.pdf (page 16). Also, I will post the full solution to the conditional probability for part b.

comment When determining the bounds of integration to calculate the marginal density of X, why are they |x| to infinity?
Yes, this is true, but for some reason it slipped my mind. It's been a while since I worked these sorts of problems, and yes, plotting the domain is quite basic.

Well, that certainly explains it. I suppose I will never forget to plot the domain again...

Ah, I understand that. I can't say I thought of it in that way. It's a very simple concept, but it slipped by me. I failed to realize that $(m-1)$ was enumerating the number of terms in the parentheses...thanks.

Could the right side also be $n+1$?

It's not clear to me why I can multiply $(m-1)$ by $(-1)$. The rest of the explanation makes sense to me.
