The diagram shows a shaded region bounded by the y-axis, the line y = 1 and the part of the  curve  y = x2 + 4x + 3 for which x 2.

Express y=x2+4x+3 in the form y=(x+a)2+b, where a and b are constants. Hence, for x 2,  express x in terms of y.

   ii.       Hence, showing all necessary working, find the volume obtained when the shaded region is rotated through 360O about the y-axis.



We have the expression;

We use method of “completing square” to obtain the desired form. We complete the square for the  terms which involve .

We have the algebraic formula;

For the given case we can compare the given terms with the formula as below;

Therefore, we can deduce that;

Hence, we can write;

To complete the square, we can add and subtract the deduced value of ;

Therefore, we can write;

Now we express in terms of .



Expression for the volume of the solid formed when the shaded region under the curve is rotated  completely about the y-axis is;

Therefore, for the given case;

We have found in (i) that;

Hence, for to ;
