    Questions that are driving me crazy cause I can't get the answers that match the book

    Question 1:
    For the graph y= root (9-x)
    i) calculate the area of the region bounded by the curve and the coordinate axes in the first quadrant.
    ii) calculate the volume of the solid generated when this region is rotated about the x axis.

    Question 2:
    Sketch the curve x^2=4ay and shade the region bounded by the curve and the Latus rectum y= a. Find the volume of the solid generated when this region is rotated about the axis of symmetry of the parabola.

    Please help if you want me to send my solutions I can

    Possibly you have set up the correct integrals but are just making errors in evaluating them. What integrals did you set up?

    Oh I made a very simple mistake for area - forgot to divide by 3/2. For volume, 40.5 pi is 81/2 pi; just easier to type out.
