    Nevermind (figured it out, sorry)

    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    Evaluate the integral [tex]\int{\int_T{e^\frac{y-x}{y+x} dA}}[/tex]
    where T is the triangle with vertices (0,0), (1,0), 0,1)

    a) By transforming to polar coordiantes
    b) By using the transformation u = y-x, v = y+x

    2. Relevant equations
    3. The attempt at a solution

    I know the differentiation in a) is wrong. (should be -2cos2x)
