Can I route between two subnets using a layer 3 switch?

Is it possible to route between two subnets using a layer 3 switch?
Yes, it is. You need to create VLANs for the subnets and route traffic (Inter-vlan routing) between them and than on the switch. A L3 switch is also a router so it understands Layer 3 routing.
