If 250 specialty coffee drinks were sold at the bake sale, what would the average cost per drink be given the equation .25x+250/x?

You do not have an equation. An equation needs an equal sign "=".

Also, the expression makes little sense. It looks like the drinks cost .25 each, with a fixed cost of 250.
However, that would make the total cost .25x + 250
In that case, the average cost per drink would be
(.25x + 250)/x = .25 + 250/x
250/x would be the fixed cost per drink.
Something's not right here.
