What do these statements mean?

Hi all,

What do these statements mean?

1) If the instantaneous speed of car remains the same over a period of time we say that car is traveling with constant speed.

2) The average speed = instantaneous speed If the object is traveling at a constant speed,

Please help me understand statements 1 and 2 >> and if you could use a graph that would be appreciated.
