1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

use the substitution u= x+y and v=y-2x to evaluate double integral from
∫1-0∫(1−x) -(0) of (√x+y) (y−2x)^2 dydx

2. Relevant equations

integration tables im assuming

3. The attempt at a solution
i tried to integrate directly but none of my integration tables match up to the format

You should do as the assignment tells you to do.

So perform the change of variables first.

I will write it in latex for those who want to solve it:
$$\int^{1}_{0} \int^{1-x}_{0} \sqrt{x+y} (y-2x)^2\,dy\,dx$$
Also, the Jacobian of the transformation you are trying to perform is
$$\begin{vmatrix} 1 & 1 \\ -2 & 1 \end{vmatrix}$$
What does that equal?

the jacobian equals 3 but how is that related to the entire problem ? :s

You need the Jacobian to change dy dx to du dv or dv du .

You will also need to change the limits of integration.

Solving the system of equations,
u= x+y

v=y-2x​

Sketch the region of integration for the given integral, $\displaystyle \int^{1}_{0} \int^{1-x}_{0} \left(\sqrt{x+y\ }\, (y-2x)^2\right)\,dy\,dx\,,\$ in the xy-plane. Then convert that to the corresponding region in the uv-plane.
