Every time I ask this someone just draws a graph and expects me to generalize it and be able to figure it out from now on. I want to know an algebraic method to solve for this. I've seen the inequality method but no one really bothers to explain it and seems to just infer the answers from no where. So how would I reverse the order of integration of the integral: ??xdxdy where x { [a,b] and y { [c,d] ????

Probably a textbook, but I would hope you've already seen a textbook. How about a video? If you put the title of your topic into Google, you will find various videos. If you watch one of them and still don't understand, let us know what specific step baffles you.

I am here asking on this forum because my 150\$ textbook does not explain it, because i have spent hours (yes hours) searching on Google and youtube and have yet to find anything that explains it adequately. SKIPJACK JUST STOP REPLYING TO THIS FORUM YOU ARE NOT HELPING.

And that wouldn't help either. Please point out a specific thing you have trouble with, or at least point out where the explanation stops making sense.

The problem is he solves it through graphing, I want to know how to solve it using a system of inequalities, or any other form of non-graphical algebra. I specifically asked you to stop replying skipjack.
