II) The average (mean) value of f(x) on the closed interval [0,2] is -3

a) What are the values of a,b, and c?

b) Determine the value of x that satisfies the conclusion of the Mean Value Theorem for f on the closed interval [0,3]

I got that a=0 by calculating the second derivative, and then plugging in the inflection point. But I would really appreciate some help with the rest of the problem. Thanks to anyone who can help me out!!
