{\bf HW 6\\Math 261, F18}
Please see the course syllabus for details on how to turn in your homework assignments. This one is due at the beginning of your class on \underbar{\bf Friday, October 19}.
\begin{enumerate}
\item Suppose we wish to integrate $f(x,y) = 3x^2-xy+3$ over the rectangle given by $0\leq x\leq 2$, $1\leq y\leq 5$. Set up this integral using the variable order $dxdy$ but do not compute the answer.
\item Now compute the answer to the previous problem.
\item Repeat problem 1 using variable order $dydx$.
\item Compute the answer to problem 3.
\item Suppose we wish to integrate some function $g(x,y)$ over the triangle with vertices $(0,0)$, $(0,2)$, and $(1,2)$. Set up this integral using the variable order $dxdy$. (Do not compute the answer.)
\item Compute the volume of the octahedron in $\mathbb{R}^3$ with vertices at $(0,0, \pm 1), (0,\pm1, 0), (\pm1, 0,0)$. (Hint: exploit the symmetries of the problem to reduce to a problem that may be computed as a simple double integral).
