    Evaluate the following double integral

    "f(x,y) = x^2 + y^2

    where the region R is the finite region bounded by y = x^2, 1<x<2(p.s, that is supposed to be greater than or equal to) and the x axis."

    I get this. It's vertically and horizontally simple. This next part has confused me, what are the limits for x and y?

    THanks.

    1<x<2
    0<y<x^2
    Doing that, I get the final answer as 6.04 and it's supposed to be 12.24

    doing the dy part first you get x^6/3 then integrating that again, you get x^7/21. Where am I going wrong?

    You should get (x^4+x^6/6), You've lost a term essentially.

    You've lost me now. Where has the x^4 come from?

    Oh yeah lol. I don't know why I was doing the partial integration here! Thanks mate!

    This next question on this same topic I can't seem to get the same answer.

    "f(x,y) = 2xy

    over the region bounded by the line connecting the four points O(0,0), A(1,1), B(3,1) and C(4,0)"

    I believe you can do the double integration for either side, dxdy or dydx

    I did dydx. I get the limits for x 0 to 4 and y, 0 to y = x. Is this correct?

    It's not necessary to bump after only an hour or so.

    Your limits aren't right; when x =4 your limits imply we can have 0<=y<=4. Sketch the area described and you'll see that when x = 4, y must be 0.

    Never mind. Done. Thanks anyway.
