Find the average or mean slope of the function on this interval

Consider the function f(x)=3x3-5x on the interval [-5,5]. Find the average or mean slope of the function on this interval.
By the mean value theorem, we know there exists at least on c in the open interval (-5,5) such that f'(c) is equal to this mean slope. There are two values of c that work
what is the smaller one?
what is the larger one?
