I have solved this.
Please confirm if my answers are right.
First two values are okay but third one RMS seems way off. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Root_mean_square this might help. Break signal as sum of AC and DC. A DC of 7.5 and a sawtooth waveform of maximum amplitude 2.5. http://www.ces.clemson.edu/ge/staff/park/Class/ECE262/Homework/7th/Ch09/SawRMS/SawRMS.html. Then use RMS formula .
It comes out to be 7.6376.
I the RMS over all time of a periodic function is equal to the RMS of one period of the function.
& the RMS for a f'n over all time in the Wiki link that you provided is what I have used. Help!!
Try this :
Integrate the square of the function (that you got) over one period. This gives you mean square value.
Under root of this is RMS.
Put the limits from 0 to 1 to get 58.3333
The correct answer for RMS value is
as pointed out by dalam
