I'm not sure how I'm supposed to set up the equation. I know avg v= delta x over delta t, but I can't get it so that it works.

The average V while accelerating and decelerating is half the uniform velocity between B and C. If all three distances are equal, it will therefore take twice as long to do AB or CD as it will to travel BC. That means 2/5 of the time is spent accelerating and decerlating, and 1/5 at constant velocity (BC).

You had the right equation in mind, but just needed to follow through with the logic.
