Find the average rate of change the function over the given interval f(t)=3+sin t a.[ pi/2, pi] b[pi/2,3pi/2] I'm stuck with this question...I know the answer is a= 2/pi, and b=0 and I know I need to use the formula of f(x2)f(x1)/x2x1. But I need the really detailed information. Thanks for your help.

Let x1=pi/2, x2=pi delta(x)=x2 x1, delta(y)=f(x2)f(x1) Applying delta(y) /delta(x)
