'''Solution'''. We can actually solve this by having three different integrals of the functions from (0,0) to (1,0) , from (1,0) to (0,1), and from (0,1) to (0,0). Here, we would like to show a different approach using the Green�s Theorem.
We let {$P(x,y)= x^4$} and {$Q(x,y)= xy$}. By Green�s theorem, we have

!!!Example#1

Evaluate

{$$\int_{C} x^4 dx+xydy$$}

where {$C$} is the triangular curve consisting of the line segments from (0,0) to (1,0) , from (1,0) to (0,1), and from (0,1) to (0,0) .

Take for example the figure shown below. {$C$} here corresponds to an oriented close path or a path where the starting point is the same as the endpoint. {$D$} here is the interior region of closed path {$C$}. Green�s Theorem transforms a line integral at a closed curve {$C$} and a double integral over the plane region {$D$} bounded by {$C$}.

In stating Green�s Theorem, we use the convention that the positive orientation of a simple closed {$C$} refers to a single counterclockwise traversal of {$C$}. This means that if {$C$} is given by the vector function of {$r(t)$}, {$a \leq t \leq b$}, then the region {$D$} is always on the left as the point {$r(t)$} go across {$C$} as shown in the figure below.
