this is a double integral to be evaluated.`int_0^2int_y^(2y)xydxdy`
we can evaluate the inner integral `int_y^(2y)xydx` treating y constant and then evaluate the outer integral with the result of this integral

using fundamental theorem of calculus we can evaluate it as follow with replacing every occurance of x with the upper and lower values.
Remember that upper bound is x=2y and lower bound is x=y

`1/2[(2y)^2y-1/2(y)^2y]= 1/2[ 4y^3-y^3]`
now sub this result `1/2[ 4y^3-y^3]` into the outer integral and we have:
`int_0^(2)1/2[ 4y^3-y^3]dy`
`1/2int_0^(2)[ 4y^3-y^3]dy` 1/2 was constant and I took it out of the integral

Integrating ` 4y^3-y^3` we have `1/2[y^4-1/4y^4]_0^2`

Now this expression `[1/2y^4-1/8y^4]_0^2` means evaluate this from 0 to 2 meaning first substitute the upper bound 2 into the equation and subtract it from this result with the lower bound value.
`1/2(16) - 1/8(16)=8-2=6`

`:.` the value is 6
