X and Y are independent and identically distributed uniform (0,1) random variables. Find E(X|X>Y) Please explain it step by step. I am getting ans 0.5 while the actual answer given is 0.66

A simple graphical approach is via using just x-y plane. These variables are independent, so their joint is defined over the square $[0,1]\times[0,1]$. This region shows us all possible pairs of $(X,Y)$ When $X>Y$ is given as event, we should focus on the region *below* the line $X=Y$, where it contains $(X,Y)$ pairs having the desired ordering. So, your interested region is a triangle with corners $\{(0,0),(1,0),(1,1)\}$. What is the center of mass of this triangle, and what is its x coordinate?
