    yea but i have to solve it with NINT :// the answer comes out to be 0 at x=1

    What's the ummm average of integral formula? I always forget that thing...\[\large f_{ave}=\frac{1}{b-a}\int\limits_a^b f(x) dx\]I think it's that thing right? So if we apply that to our problem,\[\large f_{ave}=\frac{1}{\sqrt3-0}\int\limits_0^{\sqrt3} x^2-1 \;dx\]Which gives us,\[\large \frac{1}{\sqrt3}\left[\frac{1}{3}x^3-x\right]_0^{\sqrt3} \qquad = \qquad 0\] Does it have something to do with that maybe? So the average of our integral occurs when f(x)=0... Am I interpreting that correctly?? So we have \(f(x)=0 \quad \text{when} \quad x=1\). I dunno... This is a bit of a confusing problem. That's my guess at least.
