I have a problem that seems really basic, but for whatever reason I keep messing up...
f(r) = 7/(1+r)^2
Find the average value of the function on the interval [1,5]
I let u = 1+r
so du = dx
and integral 7u^-2 du
integrated I get -7u^(-1) and the new interval is [2,6]
-7(6)^-1+7(2)^-1 = 7/3
So the answer I keep coming up with is 7/3 which is wrong evidently........ Can anyone help?
