#### Explanation:

This is the equation for kinetic energy. It can be rearranged to give

We know the mass

We know that the energy at the end is

Now we have the initial and the final velocities.

Work out the average (of anything) by adding them all together and dividing by the total number of things. In this case, we only have two velocities, so:
