Find the volume of the solid generated when region R is resolved about the x-axis using the method of "washers" AND "shells" with respect to X.

2. Relevant equations

Let R be the region enclosed by the graphs of y=(64x)^(1/4) and y=x

3. The attempt at a solution

My teacher assigned this without teaching it since my school has block schedule so I'm kind of lost.

Formula for washer: pie*(R^2-r^2) So pie*((64x)^1/4)^2-(X^2)) ?

Formula for shells: 2pie(r)(h)delta(r) No clue.

I know the answer will be same but I'd like to learn both methods.
