To find the volume bounded by (x - 8y = 0) and the lines (x + 2y) revolved about the y-axis, you can use the method of cylindrical shells.

- Solve for the intersection point of the two curves by setting (x - 8y = x + 2y) and solving for (x) and (y).
- Integrate the volume element formula (\int 2\pi x h , dx) where (h) is the height of the shell, which is the difference between the curves at a given (x) value.
- The limits of integration will be from the x-coordinate of the intersection point to the x-coordinate where the curve (x + 2y) intersects the y-axis.
- Integrate the formula with respect to (x) over the specified limits to find the total volume.
