The Box-Mueller transformation is a way to generate a random normal variates from two uniform variates.
1. Learn how to generate uniform random variates in SAS in the DATA step.
2. Use DATA step programming to combine the uniform variates to form a normal variate.
I suggest looking into PROC UNIVARIATE when you are ready to generate descriptive statistics that indicate that the sample statistics for X and Y are close to the parameters in the population.
For the contour plot and surface plot, I suggest you look at PROC KDE, which can produce bivariate plots of density.
