How many gallons of water are in the tank?

How many gallons of water will it take to fill the tank?

My teacher asks us to solve this by using 2 ways: non-calculus and calculus. I figured out the non-calculus one by using geometry, but I have no idea about the calculus method. Can anyone possibly help me some?

Thanks.

Thank you.

But probably this problem is not that hard, this is a Calculus AB level question, so we are suppose to use the disc method, shell method or cross section things like that. But I hardly relate this problem to them...
