[CALCULUS III - DOUBLE INTEGRALS] Evaluate \[\int_{0}^{1}\int_{y-1}^{0}e^{x+y}dxdy\].

\[\int_{y-1}^{0}e^{x+y}dx=e^{x+y}|_{y-1}^{0}=e^{(0)+y}-(e^{(y-1)+y})\]\[=e^y-e^{2y-1}\]

\[=e^y(1-e^{y-1})\]

\[\int_{0}^{1}e^y-e^{2y-1}dy\]

Currently I am approaching it by solving the first integral, solving the second integral, then evaluating the addition. But I feel like there is some property I am missing that could allow me to avoid all of that, notice how the limits change.

I did a wolfram computation and have verified that they do cancel out, the first integral is c and the second integral is -c, so you obtain c + -c = 0 Now rather than evaluate each integral, what property or observation am I missing that will allow me to realize the symmetry that allows them to cancel out

Anybody capable and willing to help provide analysis as to how these integrals evaluated and added together equate to zero?

limits flipped gives\[e^{2y-1}-e^y\]

You can factor out the negative to obtain the same integral \[e^y-e^{2y-1}\]

So you are taking \[\int_{0}^{1}u\ du+(-\int_{0}^{1}u\ du)\]\[\int_{0}^{1}u\ du-\int_{0}^{1}u\ du=0\] Thanks all
