Suppose

*f*(x,t,z) = (2x - 1)yz^2, S is the solid in the first octant bounded by x + y = 1 and z^2 = x^2 = y^2.

I really don't understand how to set this up. Could anyone explain it to me? Thanks for any help you can be.

I am having difficulty setting up triple integrals. Perhaps an illustration would help.

you obviously have at least one typo in the above post...I would guess 3 typos.

You are right Martingale, there were 2 mistakes. I fixed them.

Suppose f(x,y,z) = (2x - 1)yz^2, S is the solid in the first octant bounded by x + y = 1 and z^2 = x^2 + y^2.

I think when I am freaked out a bit, I make simple mistakes. Red

looks like...

0<z<(x^2+y^2)^(1/2)

0<y<1-x

0<x<1

I am not sure what you are saying at all. x + y = 1 means that x = 1 - y and y = 1-x

and z^2 = x^2 + y^2 means that z = (x^2 + y^2)^1/2

I don't understand where you are getting the less than symbols and what that has to do with the integration process?

you are not integrating on the boundary. so if you are integrating over the region that is in the 1st octant and is bounded by the curves

and

then

is the largest can be and 0 is the smallest...therefore ...and so on...
