Find the region E for which the triple integral:

(triple integral over E) (1 - x^2 -2y^2 -3z^2) dV is a maximum.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I remember in earlier math courses finding the derivative of a single variable integral, does this problem involve finding the derivative of a triple integral and setting it equal to zero to find the maximum? If so, how would you do that?
