"The region bounded by the given curves is rotated about the specified axis. Find the volume of the resulting solid by any method."

y=5, y=x+4/x; about x=-1

2. Relevant equations

Upon plotting it I decided it would be best to use the shell method. I'm not sure how to express it in your fancy symbols but I included all of my work as an attachment.

3. The attempt at a solution

Please see attachment. The correct answer is actually 8pi(3-ln4). I have gone over it a few times and I don't see what I did wrong. Any advice whatsoever would be great, thanks.

P.S. Sorry the image is grainy, I didn't know how to make it small enough to fit the guidelines and still be legible.
