$5.5$ feet per minute
Given, relevant information: 165 feet traveled in 30 minutes. The formula for the speed of travel is $r=\frac{d}{t}$. The distance $d$ is 165 feet, and the time $t$ spent traveling is 30 minutes. With substitution of these known variables, the average speed will be $\frac{165}{30}$ feet per minute. The above fraction, when simplified, is equivalent to $\frac{33}{6}$, and $33\div6=5.5$, so the average speed will be exactly 5.5 feet per minute.
