Volume of Solid Multivariable Calc

  1. Apr 14, 2010 #1
    Find the volume of the solid in the first octant of xyz space, bounded below by the coordinate axes and the unit circle and bounded about by z = 8xy

    A) 1/2
    B) 1
    C) 2
    D) 4
    E) 8

    I know we need a double integral. The bound below should be the unit circle which would be
    x^2 + y^2 = 1. So x goes from -1 to 1 i think.

    I know it should be the double integral of 8xy but i do not know my limits of integration i am not sure how to find that out...

    Can someone help find the limits please

    Have you considered looking in your calculus book in the double integral section to review how to get the limits?
