Here is the thing though. I did this exercise using disks and got ~.5 , then I checked the answer in the back and was different, then I used shells and got the right answer. However, I've been going back to the disk method and cannot seems to find my error and keep getting the same asnwer.

Anyone want to see if they get ~1.88 using the disks method.
