**1. Homework Statement**

My question is how to handle absolute values in integrals. For instance I had this in my homework today:

[tex] \int_{-10}^{10} |t|e^{-2|t|}dt [/tex]

**2. Homework Equations**

**3. The Attempt at a Solution**

The answer to the problem without absolute values would be easy given that it is in the integral table... If it were integrated from 0 to 10 it would be easy also. I would just take away the absolute value signs and integrate from -10 to 10. But what do you do when it already is from -10 to 10?
