Hey guys, so I think I can always change the order of integration with double integrals in rectangular coordinates (x,y) and also polar coordinates (by literally just changing the order and leaving the bounds the same). However, I was trying to change the order of integration of triple integrals, and it seemed to me that not every order was possible to obtain since in this particular case there was one variable that did not depend on another one. I was just wondering if it should be possible to compute the integration in 6 different ways or if sometimes it was impossible. In "Calculus 6e" by Edwards and penny there is an example problem of calculating a volume with triple integrals and they claim it can be done in 6 different ways but only chose to show 3 ways. I don´t see how it would be possible to integrate in the order dx dy dz, I tried but failed miserably. I would like to note that this is NOT some kind of homework problem, it is an example problem solved in the book in 3 different ways, but I was trying to see if it was indeed possible to do it in 6 ways in order to study for an exam. I am attaching pictures of the problem, graphs that make it easier to solve and 3 of the alleged 6 solutions. Perhaps someone could help me out here. Thanks so much.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I did not post the images directly because they are quiet large. Thanks again in advance.
