I may have messed up in finding the correct integral, but I think the problem is that I don't know what to choose for $\displaystyle a$ or $\displaystyle b$. Can anyone help explain how I would go about choosing proper values for $\displaystyle a$ and $\displaystyle b$?

P.S. I seem to be having trouble with the LaTex, is anyone else having trouble?
