    According to the mean value theorem, there exists a c between a and b such that:

    int(f(x), a, b)= (b-a)*f(c)

    Note that I have shown the definite integral of f(x) from x=a to x=b by int( f(x), a, b).

    f(x)=6x^2, a=-3, b=4, so the theorem implies that: there exists a c between -3 and 4 such ...
