(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

the base of a solid is the triangular region bounded by the line x=0 (on the y-axis), the line y = 0 (the x-axis), and the line y = −2x + 2. Cross-sections perpendicular to the

y-axis are squares. Find the volume of S.

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I was not sure where to start with this question. Is it something where is should be using disk shell method and rotating about an axis in order to find a volume? or is it done by finding the area of the triangular base (which I found to be 1) and multiplying by a length? I would really appreciate some help on how I could picture this question and go about it.
