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.
