find volume that is under z = 4x and over area D that is being blocked by y=x^2 y=0 and x=1

for y = 0 x must be 0 because y = x^2

so x will go from 0 to 1

y will go from 0 to x^2

but what about z? Will it go from 0 to 4x or should I say

z = 4x
y = x^2

that means y = z^2/16 => z = +/-4y

so z will be from -4y to 4y

here are the integrals

thanks in advance

The first form is incorrect. y is not equal to [itex]x^2[/itex] throughout the region, only at the top boundary. z=4x on the entire region so the second integral is correct.
