    I would use the method of cylindrical shells. At any f(x) value between 2 and 6, what is the radius from that y point to y = -4?

    The setup of the integral depends on the method you use....

    so... \(\large dV=\pi(R^2-r^2)dx \) so \(\large V=\pi \int_2^6(R^2-r^2)dx \) you replace the expressions for R and r ....
