Note: as i was typing this post, i think i figured out the answer but i want to confirm.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Question:

let A denote the set of points that are interior to, or on the boundary of, a square with opposite verties at the points (0,0) and (1,1). let Q(A) = ∫∫dydx

if C, a subset of A, is the set {(x,y): 0 < x/2 ≤ y ≤ 3x/2 < 1}, compute Q(A)

Solution:

I kept getting 1/2 as the answer, but i think my limits of integration were wrong. is the following correct?

[itex]^{2/3}_{0}[/itex]∫[itex]^{3x/2}_{x/2}[/itex]∫dydx

this setup gives the answer as 2/9... unfortunately i do not have the correct answer which is why i needed to verify.
