A particle moves vertically up and down. The height, $h$ (in feet), of a particle for various times, $t$ (in seconds), is provided in the table below.

$t$ 1 3 8 12 15
$h$ 3 6 9 7 5

Estimate the average height of the particle on the interval $1\le t \le 15$? Use a trapezoid approximation for your calculation. Round to the nearest tenth of a foot.

A

$2.1\text{ ft}$

B

$6.0\text{ ft}$
