1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data Find the average value of the function g(x,y) = x^2 + y^2 on the region x^2 + 2xy + 2y^2 -4y =8 2. Relevant equations 3. The attempt at a solution so far, I complete the square of the region that we want to find average value, x^2 + 2xy + 2y^2 -4y =8. And after completed the square I got, (x+y)^2 + (y-2)^2 = 12. Then I let u = x+y, v = y-2, therefore, i got u^2 + v^2 = 12, which is just a circle with radius 2sqrt3. Then I solve for x and y to plug it into the original function, x = u-v-2, y = v + 2. After that, I plug it into g(x,y), which I then have, [int][int] (u-v-2)^2 + (v+2)^2, integrate from theta = 0 to 2pi, and r = 0 to 2sqrt3, using polar coordinate. Is the way i did on this problem right so far? I'm not exactly sure of myself.
