Green's theorem

Apply Green's Theorem to evaluate the integral over C of 2(x^2+y^2)dx + (x+y)^2 dy, where C is the boundary of the triangle with vertices (1,1), (2,2) and (1,3) oriented in the counterclockwise direction.

Also check the result by direct integration.

Please show detailed working so I can follow the steps of the working.

Thank you
