Homework Help: Integrating to find Volume (different from the other guy)

    Ok so I'm doing my online homework and I came across this problem:

    "Find the volume of the solid obtained by rotating the region bounded by the given curves about the specified line.

    y=11, y=x+28/x

    about x=-4"

    So I attempted to use the shell method to solve this equation but I get confused on how to set up my integral. I don't really know how to tackle the region I'm integrating about (x=-4).

    Are you having trouble finding the shell radius, or something else? If you could be more specific, or show your work, it would be easier to help.
