Double Integral help

What ive done:

(-1, 2)
(1, 2) are the intercepts.

my integral has dy then dx.
1top -1bottom on the outside integral.
(x^2 + 1)top (2x^2)bottom on the inside integral.

****

So i got 8/15 units^2 just wondering if this is right, if not pls help.

Hey Brennox.

One method for future ref erence to check symbolic calculations is to use Wolfram Alpha which is a symbolic computational engine. You should put your integral in there to see how it turns out:

Wolfram|Alpha: Computational Knowledge Engine

This is especially useful if you can't find someone quick enough.

I agree with your bounds. I don't agree with your final answer. Unless you post all your working, I can't see where you've gone wrong.
