Area Bounded By The Curve

Hello, can somebody help me please?
I have the following question......

Find the area bounded by the curve y=1/x between x=2 and x=6. (to 3dp)

I have 6
? 1/x dx
2
6
=[ln |x|]
2

=ln6-ln2

am I going along the correct path? if so, I have reached a point where I cant see how to progress.
could somebody advise me please?

Re: Area Bounded By The Curve

Is that it?

I thought there was parts that I had missed as I struggle with Integration.
Thank you very much.
You have cheered an old man up.
