Are there two ways of calculating the average kinetic energy of a molecule?
Ik that 1/2mv^2 works
but for this problem, i don't know the mass or the velocity....

Use temperature.

average KE of a molecule is a function of temperature, that relation is in your book. The exact function depends on the type of molecule.
