Trying to help a friend with a problem. We are supposed to solve the below using polar coordinates. The actual answer is supposed to be π/16. Solving the integral is not the issue, just converting it.

2. The attempt at a solution

What I got sort of worked, but it is only half of the answer given.

The actual answer was this, but putting it into the calculator gives a completely different answer from what it's supposed to be.

This is how I was reading the situation:

The hatch is the area that it seems we need to integrate over, and it also seems as though my answer shouldn't even be close given how it is a rectangular area.

Is there something I'm not seeing, or is the provided answer wrong?
