you need to change to the generalized spherical coordinates, i.e. put $\displaystyle x_1=r \cos \phi_1, \ x_j=r \sin \phi_1 \sin \phi_2 \cdots \sin \phi_{j-1} \cos \phi_j, \ \ 2 \leq j \leq n-2,$ and

$\displaystyle x_{n-1}=r \sin \phi_1 \sin \phi_2 \cdots \sin \phi_{n-2} \cos \theta, \ x_n=r \sin \phi_1 \sin \phi_2 \cdots \sin \phi_{n-2} \sin \theta,$ where $\displaystyle 0 \leq \phi_j \leq \pi, \ 0 \leq \theta \leq 2 \pi,$ and $\displaystyle 0 \leq r \leq R.$

now find the Jacobian of this transformation and finally using gamma function your multiple integral would be pretty easy to evaluate.

see we did not learn the method that you are referring to, is there another way to solve it?

there's also an inductive solution. see here.

Wow !

I finished this pdf in around 2 hours... That was long (Crying) (hey I'm still a beginner at creating pdf lol). Tell me if there is any mistake.

I hope this will help ~

Prerequisites : Integral and transformation in $\displaystyle \mathbb{R}^n$, integration by parts, reduction formula for integrals, and being brave (Rofl)
