Quesion on my final today

    Quesion on my final today!!!!

    I had the following question on my final exam today and i was wondering if i did it correctly:

    Let [tex]y=\ln{x}\ [/tex] bounded by [tex]x=e[/tex]and the x-axis. Create a solid of revonution by revolving the are of R about the the line x=-1.

    (a) use the cylindrical shell method.

    (b) use the washer method

    to find the volume of R.

    We didn't have to evaluate the integrals. we just had to set them up
    are my ansewers below correct? thx in advance.

    [tex]\pi\int_{0}^{1}{(e^y + 1)^2-1^2}dy[/tex]

    [tex]\2\pi\int_{1}^e\ln{x}(x +1)dx[/tex]

    I finally got these:
    cylindrical shell: [tex]2\pi\int_{1}^e\ln{x}(x +1)dx[/tex]

    washer: [tex]\pi\int_{0}^{1}{(e + 1)^2-(e^y + 1)^2}dy[/tex]
