Hi.

I've been asked to find the volume of the region bounded by the 3 inequalities . This is, three cylinders of radius r. Using a triple integral to find the body seems to be the 'natural way', but I can't see how to calculate

Thanks!

As a starting point, look at equation (19) on this page. The pictures between equations (17) and (18) on that page illustrate how the integral is formed.
