In this example, we integrate a shape as its bounds change along a linear function.
In this case, we example a shape 'sliding' along the 'x' axis, so we will integrate a collection of areas that are a function of 'x'.
Find the volume of a shape bounded by a semi-circle whose base is bounded by y=0, x=0, and x+5y=4.
