## Homework Statement

The problem asks to integrate dx\(sqrt(abs(x-1))) from 0 to 2.

[itex]\int(dx/(sqrt(abs(x-1))))[/itex]

## Homework Equations

I had the limit as b approaches 1 of the integral (from 0 to b) plus the limit as c approaches 1 of the integral (from c to 2).

## The Attempt at a Solution

After integrating, I got 2(sqrt(x-1)). Then I plugged in my bounds for the two limit equations and got (0-2)+(2-0)=0. However, I know the answer is 4. What am I missing? I have a feeling that I am forgetting to do something with the absolute value.
