set up of tripple integral
the problem:

Consider the region bounded by the plane z = x and the surface z = x2, and the planes y = 0 and y = 3.

Write an integral to find the volume of the region in the form http://www.webassign.net/cgi-bin/sym...%28%20%29%20dx.

I figured out A=0 B=1 C=0 and D=3 but im not sure how to get E and F
Can someone please explaing to he how i would get them and how to get f(x,y,z)

Thank you!

As you're trying to find the volume of this, then $f(x,y,z) = 1$, identically. As for the limits. You have it

$\int_0^1 \int_0^3 \int_{x^2}^x 1 \,dz\, dy\, dx$
