Please check the function for typo, since

f(x,y)=e^(-x²) is independent of y.

Assuming no typo,

the region R is bounded between x=0 and x=1, and y=0 and y=x.

So the integegration

dy from 0 to x

dx from 0 to 1.

I=∫∫ye^(-x²)dy dx

=∫xe^-x² dx

=1/2-e^(-1)/2

The area of R is 1/2, so

Average value

= I/(1/2)

=(e-1)/e
