Hi,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I was wondering how do you know which method to use when let's say, they give you two equations and say to find the volume of the solid rotated on a certain axis. Is there a certain rule of thumb to follow (like in stock market - buy low sell high?)? I am really confused.

Thanks in advance.
