    I don't get what I did wrong in my work. Let me post it.

    Did I set up the integral properly?

    What did you get for your points of intersection? y = 7e^x vs x = 1 is obviously (1,7e) y = 7e−x vs x = 1 is obviously (1,7e-1) But what about y = 7e^x vs y = 7e−x ? Since this cannot be solved by direct methods, we get (0.9488478,18.0791250) Maybe the problem statement is not written correctly?

    I used the e points of intersection so I used 0 to 1.

    \(y = 7e^{x}\) -- You wrote this one okay. \(y = 7e^{-x}\) -- This is quite a different story. Please learn to code LaTeX or to use the Equation Editor. It will be a great benefit to you now and in the future. You're f(x) is not correct. You just picked one of the curves. You need the distance between them.

    Ohh I can write in latex. It just takes too long lol.

    It would have avoided much time and error. 7e-x is VERY different from 7e^(-x) or \(7e^{-x}\)

    So I wrote my integral as: \[14\pi \int\limits_{}^{}xe^x dx\]

    How do I incorporate the e^-x then?

    \(e^{x}\) is no good. You need \(e^{x} - e^{-x}\).

    The limits of intergation should still be the same right?

    Did you draw a picture? The height of your cyllinders is the difference of the two curves.

    I like it. Now, your punishment for writing one of the equations incorrectly in the beginning is to find the point of intersection for what you wrote. Find the value of x such that \(7e^{x} = 7e - x\). It's a wonderful exploration.
