First step: draw the graphs! They intersect at (0,0) and (1,1). You want to rotate a small lens-shaped area. To find the volume, you can do two methods. Think of the volume as a stack of discs with holes (washers). The holes are there because a slice of area is rotated around ...

many functions meet those criteria, but one of them is given roots: y = (x - (1+?2))(x-(1-?2)) = x^2-2x-1 That has a y-intercept of -1. So, multiply it by 4. It has the same roots, but now y(0) = -4.

as it stands, I think there's something wrong. you want dt/dx = 0 but since ?n is always >= 0, that means that ?(x^2+a^2) + ?(b^2+d^2) = 0 since even powers are always non-negative, that means that x,a,b,d are all zero. and 0 is not in the interval (0,d)
