For a)    the integral is  ∫ dy ∫ dx  1     with the following limits:
The lower limit of the outer integral is 0
The upper limit of the outer integral   is  4
The lower limit of the inner integral is   y/2
The upper limit of the inner integral is sqrt(y)

For b)   the integral is  ∫ dx  ∫ dy  1    with the following limits
The lower limit of the outer integral is 0
The upper  limit of the outer integral is  2
The lower limit of the inner integral is x2
The upper limit of the inner integral is 2x

Both integral evaluate to the same result which is 4/3
