### Describe in Detail

Let (X, Y) have a joint probability mass function

= 0, elsewhere

Find the marginal mass functions of X and Y.

### Explanation

Let (X, Y) have a joint probability mass function, the individual distribution of either X or Y is called the marginal distribution. So, the marginal mass functions of X is
