You have a variety of errors in your code that are causing the
problem. You have defined the functions f and g to have an
argument. Yet when you call the function you don't supply an
argument. That is g needs to be defined as follows:
g[x_]:=Sum[f[i],{i,x}]/x
Similarly when you plot g the syntax is
Plot[g[x],{x,1,100}]
But you also have a problem with your definition of f. The
argument to Boole needs to be an expression not an integer that
will be returned by DigitCount. That is you need something like
f[x_]:=Boole[DigitCount[x,10,3]>0]
