    Find the points of intersection. This will also be your integral limits with this lovely region.

    Perfect. Now, decide disks or shells. With this well-behaved region, it really doesn't much matter. Just pick one.

    Disks it is, then. \(\pi\int\limits_{0}^{1} OuterRadius^{2} - InnerRadius^{2} d(Height)\) The "Height" is the x-direction, so we have: \(\pi\int\limits_{0}^{1} OuterRadius^{2} - InnerRadius^{2} dx\) Now indentify that inner and outer radii. What say you?

    Well, I would prefer the more literal (-5-x^2), but it will do since we are just going to square it. Is that the inner or the outer radius?

    my bad, and R right?

    No worries. x^2 is the inner radius. Are we calling that 'r'? What is the outer radius, "R"?

    isn't (-5-x^2) the outer radius? and yes

    No, \(x^{2}\) and \(\sqrt{x}\) are a little funny on [0,1] \(\sqrt{x} \ge x^2\;for\;x\in[0,1]\)

    r is \((-5 - x^{2})\) R is \((-5 - \sqrt{x})\) That's all. Did you draw a picture? You will see it at a glance.

    I'm still confused toward the sqrt(x) where'd that come from?

    x = y^2 ==> y = sqrt(x) We have integration "dx", so we need the representation in terms of x.

    Once we realized what the region was, and where the square root came from, you were all over it. This is encouraging! Move on to the next one!
