The volume of the resulting solid is?

I assume you made a sketch.

You should have the two graphs intersecting at (0.0) and (16,4)

So we will washer discs with outer ratius of 4 - x/4 and inner radius of 4 - √x

area of washer disc = π(4-x/4)^2 = π(4-√x)^2

= π(16 - 2x + x^2/4 - (16 - 8√x + x)

= π( -3x + x^2 + 8x^(1/2)

volume = π∫(-3x + x^2 + 8x^(1/2) dx from 0 to 16

= π [ (-3/2)x^2 + (1/3)x^3 + (16/3)x^(3/2) ] from 0 to 16

= π(-384 + 4096/3 + 1024/3 - 0]

= π(3968/3)

check my arithmetic
