We have a hollow insulating spherical shell of inner radius a and outer radius b. While it can be treated as a point for r > b, find the electric potential on the inner surface of the shell.

2. Relevant equations

[tex]\phi = k_e\frac{q}{r}[/tex]

3. The attempt at a solution

My best idea is that I'm going to need to set up a triple integral. If this was from any point in the center it would be trivial, but it's a little harder from the inner surface. Any suggestions on where to start with this integral?
