some complex variables
As you can see from the checkmarks I already got 6a and 4
If someone could just help me with the notation on 1, like what do those (+) things mean?

I'm pretty sure that's just a polygonal path (straight-line) path from the points . Looks pretty messy too.
If I calculate an antiderivative:
and then use this to calculate the other integral, I get for the first leg:
Maybe easier way though.
well one thing i just thought of is, this is a closed piecewise smooth curve so wouldn't the integral be 0?
No. The integral is zero only if the integrand is analytic in and on a closed contour and 1/z is not in any closed contour about the origin.
