y = x^3 y = 4x in the first quadrant about line y = 8 Would this be right?... integrate (from 2 to 0) [((8-x^3)^2)-(8-4x)^2] dx *pi Can someone tell me if I am right, if not, could you tell me how it should be? (I am using the washer method)

Yes you integral is set up right, now simplify the expression and integrate.

Volume should never be negative, so therefore check your integration. You may have made a mis-calculation somewhere.

Same as skeeter, work it out spaced out neatly, the difference sign in between the two can often make one lose track.

We are both positive, just because she seems like she is always right, doesn't mean she is right.
