This double integral should have to be done in two parts. first we have to integrate with respect to (w.r.t) y and then w.r.t x. When integrating w.r.t y then x becomes constant and vice versa.


`int^1_0 int^0_-2 (2x+3y) dy dx`

= `int^1_0 [2xy+3y^2/2]_(-2)^0 dx`    -----> integration w.r.t. y. x is constant

= `int^1_0[2x(-2)+3(-2)^2/2-0]dx`  -----> apply limits of y

= `int^1_0 [-4x+6] dx`

= `[-2x^2+6x]_0^1`

= [-2+6-0]

= 4


`So` `int^1_0 int^0_-2 (2x+3y) dy dx``= 4`

This is an iterated integral, which means that you evaluate the dy integral first and then the dx integral second.  In each case, you hold the other variable as a constant.

`int_0^1 int_{-2}^0 (2x+3y)dy dx`    integrate y

`=int_0^1(2xy+3/2y^2)_{y=-2}^{y=0}dx`   simplify





The double integral is 4.
