    let X have mass function\[ f_{x}(x)=(a/)x^{2} ;x=1,2,..... \] and Y have mass function \[ f_{y}(y) =(b/y^{2} ) y =\pm1,\pm2\] find a and b

    use \[\sum_{k=1}^{\infty}\frac{1}{k^2}=\frac{\pi^2}{6}\]

    so it will be \[ a \sum_{1}^{\infty }1/x^{2} =1\] \[a (pi/6)=1\] then a =6/pi

    you are really just doing the sum twice so \[\sum_{k=-1}^{-\infty}\frac{1}{k^2}+\sum_{k=1}^{\infty}\frac{1}{k^2}=\frac{\pi^2}{6}+\frac{\pi^2}{6}=\frac{\pi^2}{3}\]
