Find teh center of mass of a thin infinite refion in the first quadrant bounded by the coordinate axes and the curve y=e^{-2x}, if ρ(density)= xy

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I set M= ∫∫ xy dydx where y goes from 0 to y=e^{-2x}, and x goes from 0 to infinity. I solved this and got 1/8

but when i try to calculate M_{x}and M_{y}the integration are impossible.
