find the average height of y=(2/3)*(sqrt (9 - x^2) ) over the interval [-3,3]
i used the average height formula but i get the answer as 0 while the correct answer is supposed to be Pi/2
can someone help me out?

how did you integrate to get to the last step?
i think thats where im erring
you don't need calculus to integrate, only geometry ... the graph of from -3 to 3 is a semicircle of radius 3.
oh i see
but is it possible to use calculus and find the area because thats what the question wants i think
possible, but a bit more involved.
use the trig substitution
