(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({}); 1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data

Determine the average value of the following function over the interval [0,6]

f(t) = (t^{2}-1)e^{-0.5t}

2. Relevant equations

1/(b-a) ∫ f(x) = {f(x)}

3. The attempt at a solution

Substitution?

let u = (t^{2}-1)

du/dt = 2t

du/2t = dt

1/(6) ∫ u e^{-0.5t}(du/2t)

And here, I reach a roadblock.
