Find the volume of this region: The tetrahedron in the first octant bounded by the coordinate planes and the plane passing through (1, 0, 0), (0, 2, 0), and (0, 0, 3).(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Looking at this problem I thought it just involved solving a fairly simple triple integral:

||| dz dy dx

With these limits of integration:

0 <= x <= 1

0 <= y <= 2

0 <= z <= 3

I get the answer 6, but my textbook says the answer is 1. Is this a typo in the textbook or did I do something stupid?
