Double Integral : Horizontal and Vertical Simple Methods

I have managed to evaluate the double integral using the horizontal simple method, and answer 63. But when I reverse the order (vertical simple method) I cannot reach the same answer of 63, I get 65.

1) Evaluate the double integral of f(x,y)=x+4y^2 over the triangular region with vertices (-2,2) (4,2) & (1,-1)

Check that reversing the order of integration gives the same answer?

Solution Summary

A mystery is solved as to why two methods of integration give a supposedly different result.
