I know it has something to do with arc length and I know how to find arc length for the curve, but I am confused the average value part. Thanks.

In 1D the average value of a function f(x) is defined by Can you see how this is generalized for 3D?

Whoops the limits of integration for the curve were 0 to 3qrt2.

Your function has three variables so just saying "0 to makes no sense. Which variable is "0 to "? Or are x, y, and z give by some parametric functions with the parameter from 0 to ?
