Thread: Volume Around y-axis with Cylindrical Shells

Okay, so $r(x)=8x-23$ and $R(x)=-x^2+20x-50$ Go ahead and set $r(x)=R(x)$ and you get your bounds of integration, $x=3\rightarrow9$ . The shell method states that $V=\int_a^b 2\pi x[R(x)-r(x)] dx = \int_3^9 2\pi x[(-x^2+20x-50)-(8x-23)] dx$. Can you take it from there?
