Question 01 (c) 

For this question, the exam asks to put your answer in the box provided but also to show your work. This question is worth 3 marks. Full marks is given for correct answers placed in the box and at most 1 mark is given for an incorrect answer. You are required to simplify your answers as much as possible. Find the average value of the function on the given interval: 
Make sure you understand the problem fully: What is the question asking you to do? Are there specific conditions or constraints that you should take note of? How will you know if your answer is correct from your work only? Can you rephrase the question in your own words in a way that makes sense to you? 
If you are stuck, check the hint below. Consider it for a while. Does it give you a new idea on how to approach the problem? If so, try it! 
Hint 

The average value of a function over the interval is given by 
Checking a solution serves two purposes: helping you if, after having used the hint, you still are stuck on the problem; or if you have solved the problem and would like to check your work.

Solution 

Found a typo? Is this solution unclear? Let us know here.
Please rate my easiness! It's quick and helps everyone guide their studies. The average value of a function over an interval is given by In this case, this is given by Let us then compute the indefinite integral which we can compute via integration by parts. If we let and , then we find that and so it follows that If we then put that into the definition of the average value, we find that the average value is given by
