tbe base of a solid is the region between y=x and y=x^2. find the volume of the solid if cross secions perpendicular to the x axis are isoceles right triangles with hypotenueses in xy plane.

2. Relevant equations

n/a

3. The attempt at a solution

honestly i cannot even mentally picture what this looks like, hence i cannot set up my integral. can someone help me understand what the question is even asking?

i know what the base looks like obviously but i cannot picture where these right triangles fit in.
