A train takes 2 hours and 30 minutes to travel between 2 cities that are 210 km apart. What was the average speed of the train?
Could someone take me through the steps please on how to get the answer

avg velocity=distance/time

is that supposed to be d=vt?

No. The definition of average speed is distance traveled divided by time.

As bobpursley stated:
"The definition of average speed is distance traveled divided by time."
