Volume of solid of revolution

Let R be the region bounded by the curves f(x) = ln(x+3) +2 and
g(x) = x^2 - 8x + 18.

a) Using the washer method, find the volume of the shape which is formed if R is rotated around the x- axis.

b) Using the cylindrical shells method, find the volume of the shape which is formed is R is rotated around the line x = -2.
