The average velocity is calculated by finding the distance traveled and dividing by the time it took to go that far. In high school, many people learn rate x time= distance. The rate is the average velocity.
In this case we have 3.2/7.256=.441013 meters per second. Note the units are meters and seconds so the velocity we have it meters per second. We can convert this to any other units once we have this. Much as mile or meters per hour.
