    Basic limit involving absolute value

    Im still not seeing the big picture here. Can you write out exactly what this problem should look like with all the steps at least partially worked out?

    Basic limit involving absolute value

    Ok, I see what you are saying now, but when I graphed the parabola, I also saw that coming from the right-hand side, the values of x were also positive up until x=1.

    Basic limit involving absolute value

    Im still not sure how it is you are coming to the statement that "if x comes from the left, then this expression is positive." Can you explain how you are getting this? Here is what I have now:

    Basic limit involving absolute value

    I do not see how they should be switched. Can you explain your process in more detail?

    Basic limit involving absolute value

    Ok, from the left-hand side of the limit, I got -2, and from the right-hand side I got 2, and when x-1=0 I got "does not exist." Is this right?

    Integration by parts & inv. trig fxn

    I still dont see how this gets (1/8), and even then, what is the purpose of doing this, and where does the (2x) come from?

    Applying Integration by Parts & Trig Substitution

    Okay, thats what I thought you wanted me to do. I am now left with this: (7/4)\int sec^{3}Θ = (3/4)secΘtanΘ - (3/4)ln\left|secΘ + tanΘ\right| + C Now I need to manipulate the fraction so as to get (4/3)\int sec^{3}Θ How do I do this?

    Applying Integration by Parts & Trig Substitution

    I am still not seeing it. Currently, I have \int sec^{3}Θ = (3/4)(secΘtanΘ - \int tan^{2}ΘsecΘ)
