integral ((y  x)^(1/3))/(1 + y + x) dx dy Integrating over R being a triangle: (0,0) (1,0) (0,1) I wrote R in the polar form: 0 < theta < pi/4 0 < r < 1/(sin(theta) + cos(theta)) But still can't integrate..

by examining the symmetry with respect the line $y=x$ it should be pretty clear this integrates to $0$ over that triangle.

Great!! Well observed! It can be also solved rotating the coordinate system by pi/4
