Can we say that when the velocity is constant, the average velocity of an object is equal to the instantaneous velocity?

Thanks!

If the velocity is constant, then at every point on the particle's path, the velocity will be the same. Thus the average velocity will be equal to the velocity at any point on the particle's path. If you are defining the instantaneous velocity to be the velocity at any point, then the answer to your question is yes.
