The base of a certain solid is the triangle with vertices at (-8,4), (4,4), and the origin. Cross-sections perpendicular to the y-axis are squares. How do you find the volume of the solid?
Please see below.
Here is a picture (graph) of the base (in blue) with a thin slice taken perpendicular to the
