8-73.

Multiple Choice: The average value of $f(x) =\operatorname{ln}(x^2)$ on the interval $1 ≤ x ≤ e$ is nearest to:

1. $0.50$

1. $0.65$

1. $0.75$

1. $0.85$

1. $1.00$

You are given $f(x)$ and you want to find the average (mean) value of $f(x)$. Will you integrate and divide, or will you find the slope of the secant line?
