Integrate[Abs[x], x, Assumptions -> Element[x, Reals]] Piecewise[{{-(x^2/2), x <= 0}}, x^2/2] Bob Hanlon ---- Thomas Dybdahl Ahle <lobais at gmail.com> wrote: ============= On my Ti calculater |x| is easily integrated to |x|*x/2, but when I type Integrate[Abs[x],x] in mathematica, it seams like it can't find the solution. Is there anything I'll have to do, to make mathematica find the solution?
