## laylam25 2 years ago Anyone know how to go about this problem?! Calculate the 5-unit moving average of the function. Plot the function and its moving average on the same graph, as in Example 4. (You may use graphing technology for the plot, but you should compute the moving average analytically.)

Although I'm pretty sure I have no idea how to do this problem.. I'm quite confident you didn't give enough information. What was the function?

2. laylam25

whoops yeah sorry the function is f(x) = x^(2/3)

3. KiwiBaby

Ahhh, well... I still have no idea..lol. But at least someone else has a better shot at it now :) Good luck!

4. laylam25

Yeah I hope so :) thanks for the double check!

5. KiwiBaby

Anytime! (:

$\frac{1}{n}\int\limits_{x-n}^{x}f(t)dt$So,$\frac{1}{5}\int\limits_{x-5}^{x}t^\frac{2}{3}dt$and,|dw:1353989867919:dw|

in your drawing, where did the 3/5 come from?

thanks btw! :)

$\frac23+1=\frac53$

thank you!
