The area bounded by the curve 2y^2=x and the line 4y=x is rotated around the yaxis. The volume of the resulting structure can be expressed as V=a/bπ, where a and b are coprime positive integers. What is the value of a+b?

something's wrong. The region is not closed.

i believe its bounded from y=0 to y=2

Ah. In that case, using discs (washers),
v = ∫[0,2] π(R^2r^2) dy
where R = 4y and r = 2y^2, so
v = ∫[0,2] π((4y)^2(2y^2)^2) dy
= 4π∫[0,2] 4y^2  y^4 dy
= 1024/15 π

no, i think that
∫[0,2] π((4y)^2(2y^2)^2) dy is 256/15π

you may be right. maybe I mixed in an unneeded factor of 4 somewhere.
