'09)): Finding percentiles May 10 comment Probability of $X^{2} > Y^{3}$ over distribution other than uniform Thank you for the detailed explanation. Let me see if I can summarize back to you what you said to me... In general, the $X^2>Y^3$ affects the limits of integration, over the support, restricted to this condition. The integrand is whatever the joint pdf is. (If one is lucky- it's easily integrated!) In the special case of the uniform joint pdf, we were able to convert the double integral into the area under the curve, which is why the inequality condition appeared in the integrand, but this is a specific case. The general case is as I first stated. Right? TYVM!
