    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

    First we use the Green's Theorem in the plane:
    The closed surface is:

    We consider:

    Then :

    which is:

    on the given surface. We can divide ...
