Evaluate the following integral: 

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

First, you must evaluate the integral with respect to z. Using the rules for integration, we get  evaluated from  to . The result is . This becomes , evaluated from  to . The final answer is .

Example Question #2192 : Calculus 3

Evaluate:

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

To evaluate the iterated integral, we start with the innermost integral, evaluated with respect to x:

The integral was found using the following rule:

Now, we evaluate the last remaining integral, using our answer above from the previous integral as our integrand:

The integral was found using the following rule:

Example Question #11 : Double Integration Over General Regions

Integrate:

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

To perform the iterated integration, we must work from inside outwards. To start we perform the following integration:

This becomes the integrand for the outermost integral:

Possible Answers:

1 and 3

1 3 and 4

1

1 and 4 

3 and 4

Correct answer:

1 and 3

Explanation:

 

 

No explanation necessary. This is the familiar integral for computing the area under the curve  over 

 _____________________________________________________________

 

This integral does not give the area, in fact, it will result in a function of  which certainly cannot be interpreted as the area of corresponding to a specific interval

Now carry out the integration with respect to  we obtain, 

Certainly this is not the area of the area under . One obvious problem is that the integral gave back a function of  and no real number. 

 _____________________________________________________________

This equation will reduce down to the first option, option , after we carry out the integration with respect to .  

Therefore, option  is a valid representation for the area. 

 

___________________________________________________________

The problem with this choice can be seen immediately. Clearly the first integration in will simply be the area under the curve on , but the second will now multiply the area by 

 

 

 could only be true if . But because none of the listed characteristics of our function imply this, we cannot assume it. In fact, the problem stated that  is any function that satisfies the stated conditions. Certainly  is not true for just any function. 

Example Question #685 : Multiple Integration

Evaluate the following iterated integrals:

Possible Answers:

Correct answer:

Explanation:

When evaluating double integrals, work from the inside out: that is, evaluate the integrand with respect to the first variable listed by the differential operators, and then evaluate the result with respect to the second variable listed by the differential operators. 

Here, we have the order of integration specified by ; hence, we evaluate the double integrals with respect to  first, and then integrate the result with respect to , as shown:
