    The average value of the function would be \(\large \int_{-3}^{-1} g(x)dx \) Can you do the integration?

    Sorry, the integral should be divided by (-1- (-3))=2 to get the average value.

    Average value = \( \large \int_a^b f(x)dx / (b-a) \)

    You have the correct answer, but you need to simplify it (14/3) and divide by 2 which comes from (-1-(-3)), the length of interval of integration.

    In the end, you should get 7/3.

    @oldrin.bataku I think there was a mix-up with the substituted limits of integration.
