After converting a surface over the region that [tex]\rho[/tex]=sin[tex]\phi[/tex]cos[tex]\theta[/tex]/a + sin[tex]\phi[/tex]sin[tex]\theta[/tex]/b + cos[tex]\phi[/tex]/c
I also have that this region is equal to 1.

I cant seem to get anywhere..

Well, [itex]\rho[/itex] can't be less than 0. What is the maximum value of [itex]\rho[/itex]?
 
the max is one.
 
Moneyjane,

Could you show your work to get to the maximum of 1 ?

Thanks
