In mathematics, the volume of a solid object is the amount of three-dimensional space enclosed by the boundaries of the object. The volume of a solid of revolution (such as a sphere or cylinder) is calculated by multiplying the area of the base by the height of the solid.

All right. So we're gonna do polynomial division to find our slant as in tow. So here, um X into X Squared X. And now we're gonna multiply X by each term. But make sure that we switch the sign so that the first term cancels out. So minus X squared minus eggs. Okay. And we're left with minus X plus one. And now because this canceled up, and now we're going to see X into negative X, and that's minus one. So now multiply a negative one by each term. But then switch the sign when we're down here. So that's plus X and plus one. So we're left with remainder two. But the important part is the quotient. So why equals X minus one is our slant as into
