    This is how I would set it up...

    V = \pi * \int_{-1}^{1}(6 - x^2)^2dx - \pi*\int_{-1}^{1}(6 - 1)^2dx

    This is basically integrating the area of a cross-section, which has A = \pi r^2. Then we see that the "radii" are given by (6 - f(x)) and (6 - g(x))
    Where f and g are the given functions x^2 and 1.
