# Math Help - Improper Integral

1. ## Improper Integral

How do I solve this integral using limits?
integral from 4-0 of (x)^(1/2)-abs(x-1)/(x-1)
Thanks!

2. ## Re: Improper Integral

Hey citcat.

Try breaking the integral into two analytic functions and evaluate the integral for the two parts.

Hint: abs(x-1) = x-1 if x >= 1 or 1-x if x < 1, and note that since there is only one single point with a hole in it [0/0 happens when x = 1 but otherwise it's ok] then you can ignore this issue (since it only happens at one point).
