Find the average potential over a spherical surface of radius R due to a point charge q located inside. Show that in general: (EQ 1 below), where Vcenter is the potential at the center due to all external charges and Qenc is the total enclosed charge

2. Relevant equations

EQ 1 Vave = Vcenter + (Qenc/4*pi*ε₀*R)

3. The attempt at a solution

I am just really confused on where to at least get started. I'll be at the computer for awhile so feel free to ask questions I just want to get it started.
