I have a homework question which I would like to try to explain more mathematically.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

If the average velocity of an object is zero in some time interval, what can we say about the displacement of the object for that interval?

Thinking about it graphically, I realize it must be zero. Could anyone give me a hint as to how I could explain this using algebra and calculus?
