1. ...How does this 2nd integral diverge to +∞? It seems to me that it would diverge to -∞... :/

lim ([itex]\frac{-1}{a - 1}[/itex] - [itex]\frac{-1}{0 - 1}[/itex]) + lim ([itex]\frac{-1}{2 - 1}[/itex] - [itex]\frac{-1}{b - 1}[/itex]) + lim ([itex]\frac{-1}{c - 1}[/itex] - [itex]\frac{-1}{2 - 1}[/itex])

a→1- b→1+ c→∞

2. First integral: -1/(tiny negative #) - 1 = +∞

Second integral: -1 + 1/(tiny negative #) = -1 + -∞ = -∞ <----This answer is supposed to be +∞. How?!

Third Integral: -1/(∞ - 1) + 1 = 0 + 1 = 0

The only thing I don't get it the second integral! :(

Help please!

Thanks! :)
