    The average velocity in this case will be the total distance travelled divided by the total time taken. So yes, it's the total area under the graphs (=distance travelled) divided by the time taken. As the time taken is the same it's just the relationship between those two areas.
    I haven't measured them but if they are the same then the avarage velocities were the same in that time interval.
