The attempt at a solution[/b]Question: Find the volume of the solid whose base is the triangular region of the xy-plane with vertices (0,0),(1,0),(0,1) and whose cross sections perpendicular to the y-axis are equilateral triangles.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I have the problem set up. just don't know how to get the cross sections of the triangles. i know the area is 1/2 bh i thought maybe similar triangles where the height would be sqrt(3)/4x and x=1-y. am i close? help
