Radial Probability Density = R(r) : Square of the Radial Wavefunction

The required volume is determined by the volume of the SPHERICAL SHELL enclosed between a sphere of radius (r+dr) and a sphere of radius r

rpd = radial probability density × volume of the spherical shell = R2 × 4πr2 drhow then did they cancel the dr and directly write:

rpd = R2 × 4πr2

??

also how could only radial probability be multiplied by volume? shouldn't the whole wave function be multiplied by the volume?
