# Integration regions

## Homework Statement

What type of region(s) do the following classify as?

## The Attempt at a Solution

I would classify D1 as both types; my reasoning is that by the definition of a convex polygon (i.e. all x,y in D1, the lie segment connecting x and y is entirely in D1), this therefore qualifies as both types.
For D2: Let c be a point in interval between x-value endpoints of region, cross section of D2@c, projected onto y-axis is closed interval and depends on c continuously. (This is true for an arbitrary c in between y-value endpoints), so would this be both types as well?

So tell us what a region's "type" means. We aren't reading your book.

Type I: y varies as a function of x; x is bounded by 2 constants -> y(x) < y < y(x)2
Type II: x varies as a function of y; y is bounded by 2 constants -> x(y) < x < x(y)2

Type I: y varies as a function of x; x is bounded by 2 constants -> y(x) < y < y(x)2
Type II: x varies as a function of y; y is bounded by 2 constants -> x(y) < x < x(y)2

I would agree that both areas are both type 1 and type 2. In the right hand figure (D2) the lower boundary is not a function because of the vertical segment. But you can just leave the vertical segent out making a function of ##x## that has a finite jump. Still, area is continuous as a function of ##c## if I understand what you are saying.

Can you expand on the part about negating the vertical segment by making a function of x that has a finite jump? Does this still count as being both type I and II? If I integrate D2 (starting from the left), until I hit the line segment, then add another double integral that starts from that vertical line segment and continues to the right-most bound, will this still be considered both Type I and II (the fact that I partitioned the region into 2 segments of type I (or II) and added them)?
