In #1b, 2011 FRQ. This part of the question wants us to find an average value but we need to know which function. We are given the velocity function as well as the acceleration function and thus we need to be clear on which one. Thus the need to state average velocity is needed for us to complete the requirement for that part of the question.

Take care

Can anyone explain to me why when they ask for the "average velocity" the process is to find the average value instead of just plain slope?
