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 =ln6ln2 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?

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.
