|dw:1355956366325:dw| \[\int\limits_{-2}^{1} xf(x)dx\]
basically the pieces \[x, x \le 0\] \[x+1, x > 0\]
i think you supposed to break it up? \[\int\limits_{1}^{1} x(x+1)dx\] = 0 \[\int\limits_{0}^{-2} x^2dx\] = -8/3 i'm doing something wrong...

Other answers:

Limits of integration should be [-2,0] and [0,1] respectively.
ohhh that's what i thought but cuz it's not greater than or equal to, i didn't put the zero...
Also, for the first part you seem to have taken the integral from 0 to -2. It should be from -2 to 0.
oops my bad.
ok yeah thanks. i got 7/2 as the answer
That's what I got too.
k thanks.
\[\int\limits\limits_{1}^{1} x(x+1)dx \]Looks like you got this already, but as for this part with the limits of integration that you were confused on - you can still pick the first limit on the integral as 0, even though the function is defined as x>0. The picture might help. Even though x>0, the area under the curve is still effectively from x=0 to x=1. If you only integrate from 1 to 1, the area under that is zero. You could pick a value of x just slightly greater than x=0, like 0.0000000000001, and do the integration, and you'll get essentially the same amount for the area from x=0.0000000000001 to x=1 as you do for x=0 to x=1. Sorry if that sounded confusing..
