(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

∫[|2x-1|] evaluated on the interval [1,-1]

2. Relevant equations

3. The attempt at a solution

I know we must split it into two equations ∫ from [a,c] + ∫ from [c,b]

and in absolute value one is negative and one is positive, so it will be

2x-1, and 1-2x my question is how do we know which interval to place each one in.

Do we place 1-2x in the interval from [c,b] or 2x-1, and vice versa,

thank you
