Well, there is vagueness here. I am not sure whether the rotation has been about the x-axis or y-axis. Your question is about the method of integration. Well, I consider both cases i.e. rotation about x-axis and rotation about y-axis. y=0 implies that x=0, so the integral will be taken from x=0 to x=3.

Case I- About x-axis:

but we can merge the integrand expressions, ...
