    I rather suspect that was a typo. I suspect that it was something like
    [tex]\int_Q\int (x sin y- y e^x)dx dy[/tex]
    instead.

    Yes, and that makes it obvious, does it not, that what was intended was
    [tex]\int_{-1}^1 (x sin(y)- ye^x)dx= \left[\frac{1}{2}x^2sin(y)- ye^x\right]_{-1}^1[/tex]
    [tex]= -ye^{1}+ ye^{-1}= -ey+ \frac{y}{e}[/tex]
