Please answer this calculus question?

Let F(x)=∫ sin(t^2) dt from 0 to x for 0≤x≤3. 
a) Use the Trapezoidal Rule with four equal subdivisions of the closed interval [0, 2] to approximate F(2).
b) On what interval or intervals is F increasing? Justify your answer.
c) If the average rate of change of F on the closed interval [0, 3] is k, find ∫ sin(t^2) dt from 0 to 3 in terms of k.

1) F(2)=∫02 sin(t2)dt
2) F(x) increases on the intervals where F'(x)>0. F'(x)=sin(x2). Since 0≤x≤3, F'(x)≥0 on the intervals [0,√π)]∪[√(2π);3] Therefore, those are the intervals where F(x) increases.
3) Average rate of change of F(x) is simply this: (1/3)∫03 sin(t2)dt. It is k, by the problem statement. So, the answer here is simply 3k.
