degrees Fahrenheit. What was the average temperature between 9 am and noon?

∫f(t)dt from 9 to 12

=[ 60*t-42*cos(t/3-2) ] from 9 to 12

=220.17

Average temperature over 3 hours

= 220.17/3

= 73.4°

Note to Aviana:

in the absence of parentheses, multiplications and divisions are performed before additions and subtractions.

Even when 14sin(1/3t-2) + 60 is interpreted correctly as 4sin(t/3-2) + 60, it is a good idea to insert parentheses to emphasize the intention, such as : 4sin((1/3)t-2) + 60
