# Homework Help: Double integrals, trying to be sure I am not doing something wrong

1. evaluate the following:

$\int^{1}_{0}$$\int$$^{1}_{0}$xyex+y dydx

3. The attempt at a solution

OK, so this should be pretty simple. But for some reason I am having trouble integrating the yex+y bit with respect to y. If I do it by parts I end up with iterations like this:

$\int^{1}_{0}$xyex+y - $\int^{}_{}$ex+yxdy dx

And integrating again I got

$\int^{1}_{0}$xyex+y - ex+yx $|^{1}_{0}$ dx

plugging in the relevant values I got

$\int^{1}_{0}$xex+1-xex+1 - xex + xexdx

which with the latter terms cancelling gets you

$\int^{1}_{0}$xex+1-xex+1 dx

And the whole thing should go to zero.

OK, did I do this whole bit correctly? I want to make sure that I am not doing something stupid. If I did it right, wonderful. (I know this might sound kind of silly to post a problem that I think I did correctly, but it never hurts to have another pair of eyes)

I don't have time to run through your work right now, but surely something is wrong since your integrand is positive. You must have a positive result. Why don't you try writing $e^{x+y} = e^xe^y$ and separate the integrals. Really easy then.

You're correct up to here. After here is where your solution diverges from correct solution.

P.S. It may be helpful in the future to check computationally:

Thanks, I did it again and I realized I forgot the y component. D'OH!
