Alright, I am given a function that approximates the outdoor temperature on a particular day where t is the time in hours after 9pm.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

T(t)=50+14sin([pi*t]/12)

I am to find the max and min temps and average temps on tha day between 9am - 9pm. I know i am supposed to derive the given function to find the max and min temps but once i have the derived function, what am i supposed to do with it? The instructor didn't go in depth on how we are supposed to do it. Also, i know that to find the average temp you are supposed to integrate it and do

T_avg=(1/12)integral(0-12)T(t)dt

Is that all there is to it for finding the average temp?

Thanks.
