Evaluate the definite integral from x=1 to x=4 ((x-2))/((square root x)) This is what I did x^(1/2)-(x)^(-1/2) (2/3)x^(3/2)-2x^(1/2) Did I set this up correctly?

Looks okay to me. Whoops no, you're a factor of 2 out in the second term.
What do you mean factor of 2 out in the second term?
hi homeylova223 he means that you have lost the two from 2x^(-1/2)
So would I be left with (2/3)x^(3/2)-4x^(1/2) ?
that is correct but don't forget the integration constant C.

hi Prove It sorry i didn't see that it was a definite integral.my mistake.
