Default ECON statistics help with marginal densities needed!?

Can the probabilities total be more than 1?The professor for the class (our first session), juss gave examples and they all added up to 100 %The questions was "find the marginal densities of x1 and x2" so when adding up the percentages given for the table numbers p(x1) and p(x2) each adds up to 1.02 in the column percentage totals and the row percentage totalsIs it ok if its more than 1.00??should i just round it then to 1?

Probability can never be greater than 1. You have errors in rounding.
