    So I assume you did the integration correct since it looks like the form of your answer is right. I think you made a mistake when evaluating from 1 to 2.

    I just figured it out...It didnt register for me that x^2/x can be x...duhhh ahha, so I computed x^2(x^-1)

    ahhh, i just really messed it up because then I put x^-1/1, instead of over -1
