I rearranged x+z=1 to get z=1-x => so 1-rcosθ; 0 ≤ z ≤ 1-rcosθ

but I don't know how to get the limits for θ or r. How do I do this?

Hi J Galt! Welcome to PF!

(are you trying to find the volume … you didn't say?)

Just because there's a cylinder, that doesn't mean you have to use cylindrical coordinates.

Use whatever method makes it easier!

In this case,
