draw a graph of the function and indicate the average value \[f(x)=x ^{3}-5x ^{2}+10; \left[ 0,4 \right]\]

    average value is \[\frac{f(4)-f(0)}{4-0}\]

    don't I use the anti-derivative of the function?

    oh i see you want \[\frac{1}{4}\int_0^4(x^3-5x+10)dx\]

    ok the "anti derivative" is not too bad because this is a polynomial it is \[\frac{x^4}{4}-\frac{5x^2}{2}+10x\]

    plug in 4 ignore 0 because that just gives you 0 then divide by 4

    it is \(-5x\) or \(-5x^2\) ?

    ok i get that. But how would they go on the graph. Could you give me a crude drawing?

    and the average value represented on the graph would just be a straight line at -2/3?
