Surface Area 1

  1. Apr 21, 2008 #1
    The part of the plane 3x+2y+z=6 that lies in the first octant.


    Are my limits not correct? B/c my answer is just off by a little.

    me: 6\sqr(t14), answer: 3\sqrt(14)

    No, not correct. The domain of integration is a triangle in the x-y plane, not a rectangle. So the y limits should depend on x (or vice versa).
