It's correct, but unnecessarily tedious. I looked at your final answer and the original statement and was able to see it is correct without writing anything down. Everything in between seems pointless. For example $I_1=mg\int_{y_1}^{y_2}\int_{x_1}^{x_2}dxdy=mg(y_2y_1)(x_2x_1)$. You don't need any intermediate steps.

It literally took me one hour lol. I'm teaching my self by the way and books doesn't show how to do calculations faster. Last edited by babaliaris; August 16th, 2018 at 02:50 PM.

The main point to simplify is to realize that with fixed limits for x and y you can look at it as a product of single integrals. With $I_2$, you need to break it up into 3 parts, so you can then make the double integral into the product. Once you do that you will have 8 very easy integrals where 6 have a constant integrand.
