    integration problem

    1.  \int_{\bold{R}} xy \ dx \ dy, \  \  \ R = \text{triangle with vertices at} \ (1,0), (2,2) \ \text{and} \ (1,2) .

    Is this equaled to  \int\limits_{1}^{2} \int\limits_{2x-2}^{2} xy \ dy \ dx  = -\frac{7}{12}?


    2.  \int_{\bold{R}} e^{xy} \ dx \ dy, \ \ \ R = \{(x,y) \ | \ 0 \leq x \leq 1 + (\log y)/y \}, 2 \leq y \leq 3 \} .

    Here I am assuming that  \log y = \ln y .

    So  0 \leq x \leq 1 + (\log 3)/3 and  2 \leq y \leq 3 .

    So is the integral:  \int\limits_{0}^{1 + (\log 3)/3} \int\limits_{2}^{3} e^{xy} \ dy \ dx ?

    The lower limit in the first one should be 2x-2.

    Are you finding area?. Then it shouldn't be negative.

    You set up the double integral correctly, but its value is \frac{11}6.

    As it's written, it's just

    \int_2^3 {\int_0^{1 + \frac{{\ln y}}<br />
{y}} {e^{xy} \,dx} \,dy} .
