what is the proper method for finding the average of an integral? For example, the question I'm trying to answer is this:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

"Find the average value of the function f(x) = 4 - x² over the interval [-2, 2]."

Now the answer is suppost to be 8/3. But I keep getting an answer of -11/3 no matter what I do. WTF!?!?
