    I'm trying to find the area between the following two curves. \[y=\frac{ 2 }{ 1+x^2 }, y=|x|\]

    Right but how do I integrate with an absolute value of x?

    integral(-1 to 0) (-x)dx+ integral(0 to 1)xdx

    \[\int\limits_{-1}^{1}(\frac{ 2 }{ 1+x^2 }-|x|)dx\]

    u get the value of that integral of |x| as 1

    yea because, |x| can either be +x or -x ...so u integrate -x from -1 to 0 and +x from 0 to 1

    Then you just add the two areas together?

    Ok could you just explain again why we use -x when find the definite integral between -1 and 0?

    I got the answer right, I just want to be clear as to why that is done.

    because x is negative and you so u consider the negative values of x .....I actually don't have complete knowledge on this topic :/
