1. definite integrals lnx

I have an integration whose lower limit has resulted in a negative number. What happens here? So for example;

ln (4/-2)

Does this mean it is equal to zero?

no ... if the log function was the result of integration, you should know that the log's argument involves an absolute value.

Why don't you post the actual question?
I for one, have no idea what that question means.

Thanks.

As in ln (4/2) instead of ln (4/-2)

The question is long.
