    First, you'll need the total area. What do you get?

    you have to do double integral to find mass right?

    so it will be (e-1)p?

    Right, I assumed the very common uniform density. Sorry abuot that. "e-1"? No. How did you get that?

    \[\int\ln(x)\;dx = x\ln(x) - x + C\] (e*ln(e) - e) - (1*ln(1) - 1) = e*ln(e) - e - 0 + 1 = e(1) - e + 1 = e-e+1 = 1

    \[\int_{1}^{e}\int_{0}^{ln(x)}\rho\;dy\;dx = \rho\]

    for the center mass the integral will be the same?

    It's not a matter of guesing or whether we can predict it or how we feel about it. It's just how it works out on this one,
