First, we find the distribution function of \(T_{xy}\):

$$Pr(T_{xy} \leq t) = 1 - Pr(T_{xy} > t) = 1 - Pr(T_{x} > t) \cdot Pr(T_{y} > t) = 1 - {}_t p_{x} {}_t p_{y}$$.

To find the density, we differentiate the above expression with respect to \(t\).

$$f_{T_{xy}}(t) = \frac{d}{dt} Pr(T_{xy} \leq t) = {}_t p_{xy}(\mu_{x+t}+ \mu_{y+t})$$ (you need to use the product rule to differentiate the second term in the expression for \(Pr(T_{xy} \leq t) \)).

You will also need expressions of the following form:

$$\frac{d}{dt} {}_t p_{x} = -{}_t p_{x} \mu_{x+t}$$.

Hope this helps.
