    Well that depends really... The average value of its entire domain?

    I can think of an even function which has a finite average value, and I can think of one that has an infinite one...

    If you were talking about an odd function then it'd be easy...

    What about an odd functon??

    For an odd function it would be 0, since on the other side of the y axis you have negative values.

    But to your previous question: For an odd function \(f\), we know that \(f(x)=-f(-x)\). As such, the average value (assuming \(f\) exists over all \(\mathbb R\)) is\[\lim_{a\rightarrow\infty}\frac{1}{2a}\int_{-a}^af(x)dx=\lim_{a\rightarrow\infty}\frac{1}{2a}(\int_0^af(x)dx+\int_{-a}^0f(-x)dx))\]\[=\lim_{a\rightarrow\infty}\frac{1}{2a}(\int_0^af(x)dx+\int_{-a}^0-f(-x)dx)\]Let \(u=-x\)\[=\lim_{a\rightarrow\infty}\frac{1}{2a}(\int_0^af(x)dx-\int_{0}^af(u)du)=0\]
