# Triple Intgegral watch

1. Compute the triple integral F(x,y,z) = z over the region R in the first octant bounded by the planes y = 0, z = 0, x + y = 2, 2y + x = 6, and the cylinder y^2 + z^2 = 4. (Answer 26/3).

This is what I have so far

Any tips how to get the next limits I mean I can't sketch this so dunno these questions are frustrating for me. Especially since I haven't done 3d geometry since high school.

Note that the cylinder has the x-axis as its axis of rotational symmetry, and so with the radius being 2, you are interested in the region and .

Your z limit is fine for this. Then for the x limit, just consider the xy plane sketch of and and deduce your x limit there. Finish it off with the y limit. Can be tempting to say that the y limit is 0 to 3 from this sketch, but remember but we have it 0<y<2 in order to stay within the cylinder.
