    Each unit on the axis is worth 8cm. You are multiplying both axis by each other in order to find the area R. Therefore if you multiply the area R by 64 (8 squared) then you will get the area in cm. Then its just a simple case of multiplying the area by the depth to get the volume

    Why 64? I don't understand why you times it by 8^2?

    It says that 1 unit is 8cm
    And cross section=length*width
    So you need to do 8*8=64(both axis)
    Then you multiply it by whatever you got in part a and then by the height/thickness of 2

    But on the X axis surely there's two units?

    Say if you had a rectangle which was 5 units high and 7 units wide. Then obviously A (area) would equal 35. A = 5 units x 7 units = 35 units squared

    But now if we want the area in cm and we are told that 1 unit = 8 cm
    We could do this : 5 x 8 = 40 cm high and 7 x 8 = 56 cm wide

    Therefore are new area would equal 2240 cm squared.

    In the case of the integration it is much easier to just multiply the answer for R by 8 squared. And we can do this since (using the example above)
    (5x8) x (7x8) = 5 x 7 x 64

    Yes but you're already taking that into account by using the answer from part a which uses the 2 in the trapezium rule. You are then multiplying this by 8 because each unit is 8cm. And then by 8 again for the other axis
