I was trying to think what the average value of sin(x) was between 0 and pi/2.

I came to the conclusion it must be integral of sin(x)/x evaluated at those bounds. But I tried to do that in matlab to no avail.

Any help would be awesome

How did you come to that conclusion? The average value of sin(x) between pi/2 and 0 is the integral of sin(x) from 0 to pi/2 divided by pi/2. See http://archives.math.utk.edu/visual.calculus/5/average.1/index.html.

thanks for your reply. Brain was clearly switched off and now I feel foolish
