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

Use the method of cylindrical shells to find the volume generated by rotating the region bounded by the curves y = 4+3x-x^2 and y+x=4 about the y-axis. Below is a graph of the bounded region.

2. Relevant equations

V = ∫ a to b 2 pi x f(x)

3. The attempt at a solution

∫from 0 to 4 2 pi (4-x)(4)

∫from 0 to 4 2 pi (16-4x)

∫ [16-4(4) - (16- 4(0))]

0 - 12

-12

I'm not exactly sure how to come about this problem with cylindrical shells.
