How do you solve:

$$\int_{7}^{10} \int_{11}^{14} x^{2} 4y ~ dx~dy$$

Not sure where to really start with this, so this is an example for the actual problem. Thanks!

As the integration limits are constant and the integrand is separable, we may simply write the integral as

$$\int_7^{10} 4 y \, dy \int_{11}^{14} x^2 \, dx = 4 \frac{1}{2} (10^2-7^2) \frac{1}{3} (14^3-11^3) = 102 \cdot 471 = 48402$$

we have $$\int_{7}^{10}\int_{11}^{14}x^2 4y\hspace 1mmdxdy=\int_{7}^{10}(\int_{11}^{14}x^2 4y\hspace 1mmdx)dy$$$$=\int_{7}^{10}4y(\int_{11}^{14}x^2 \hspace 1mmdx)dy$$$$=\int_{7}^{10}4y(\frac{14^3}{3}-\frac{11^3}{3})\hspace 1mmdy$$$$=\int_{7}^{10}4y(471)\hspace 1mmdy$$$$=\int_{7}^{10}4y(\frac{14^3}{3}-\frac{11^3}{3})\hspace 1mmdxdy$$$$=\int_{7}^{10}1884ydy$$$$=48042$$

Solving the first integral, we get 1/3x^3 + 4yx which gives us 471 + 12y. Next we can solve the next integral giving us 1719. Add this to both, giving us 1719. See here: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multiple_integral#Double_integral

This is the same problem and I didn't even realize it. Thank you! –  mario1433 Feb 11 '13 at 2:42

Forgive me, but isn't the integrand as the OP wrote it $x^2 \cdot 4 y$, not $x^2 + 4 y$? –  Ron Gordon Feb 11 '13 at 2:50
