Mapped to AP College Board # CHA-4, CHA-4.B, CHA-4.B.1

Definite integrals allow us to solve problems involving the accumulation of change over an interval. Determine the average value of a function using definite integrals. The average value of a continuous function f over an interval [a, b] is 1/(b-a) ∫f(x)dx over the limits a to b.
