x = 0 y = 0 z = 0 x + y = 1 z = x + 2y Density(x, y, z) = 3 + 2x + 2y  2z Answer: 1/6 My Solution (not correct) $\displaystyle \int_{0}^{1} \int_{0}^{1x} \int_{0}^{x+2y} (3+2x+2y2z) ~dz~dy~dx = 5/3 $ What did I do wrong?

I get 5/3 also just calculating the integral you wrote down. Maybe the question/integral was written down wrong?
