    \[\int\limits_{0}^{L/2}dx_1\int\limits_{0}^{L/2} dx_2|\Psi(x_1, x_2)|^2=\int\limits_{0}^{L/2}dx_1\int\limits_{0}^{L/2}dx_2|\Psi_1^2(x_1)\Psi_2^2(x_2)-\Psi_1(x_1)\Psi_1(x_2)\Psi_2(x_1)|\] Which is \[I_1I_2-I_{12}^2\] Where: \[I_1= \int\limits \Psi_1^2(x)dx= \frac{ 1 }{ 2 } \] and \[I_2= \int\limits \Psi_2^2(x)dx=\frac{ 1 }{ 2 } \] and \[I_{1,2} = \int\limits\limits \Psi_1(x) \Psi_2(x)dx = \pm \frac{ \sqrt{51} }{ 2 }i\] Resulting in 13
