Ok, I have to integrate this

[int a=0 b=3] 1 / sqrt[abs(x-2)] dx

what should i do ? do the improper integral of 1/-(x-2) and 1/(x-2) ?

Do you know how to work this out:

$$\int \frac{1}{\sqrt{x-2}}dx$$

If so just split the function you have in to the 2 different functions it is composed of and intergrate over the relevant areas.
