AVERAGE

AVERAGE(number1 [,number2] [..])

Returns the arithmetic mean of the values in a list, table or cell range.

number1The first number.
number2(Optional) The second number.

REMARKS
* For an illustrated example refer to the [[Central Tendency]] page.
* The arithmetic mean is the most common measure of central tendency.
* This function includes hidden cells.
* Arguments that are just numbers are included.
* Arguments that are just numbers passed as text ("3") are included. See Example 15.
* Arguments that are just logical values are included. True evaluates to 1. False evaluates to 0. See Example 16.
* Arguments that are just text will generate a #VALUE! error. See Example 18.
* Arguments that are references to cells containing zeros are included. See Example 9.
* Arguments that are references to cells containing dates are included and the date serial number is used. See Example 12.
* Arguments that are references to cells containing logical values are excluded. See Example 11.
* Arguments that are references to cells containing text are excluded. See Example 10.
* Arguments that are references to cells containing error values will be returned. See Example 14.
* Arguments that are references to empty cells are excluded. See Example 8.
* Arguments that are arrays containing logical values are excluded. See Example 20.
* Arguments that are arrays containing text are excluded. See Example 19.
* You can have a maximum of 255 arguments.
* You can use the AVERAGEA function to include logical values and text.
* You can use the AVERAGEIFS function to return the arithmetic mean that satisfies multiple conditions.
* You can use the AGGREGATE function to exclude hidden cells.
* You can use the AVERAGEVISIBLE - User Defined Function to exclude hidden cells.
* You can use the DAVERAGE function to return the arithmetic mean of all the numbers in a column that satisfies multiple conditions.
* You can use the MEDIAN function to return the number in the middle of a set of numbers.
* You can use the MODE.SNGL function to return the value that occurs most frequently in a list or array of numbers.
* This is similar to the COUNT, MAX, MIN and SUM functions.
* You can enter the abbreviated function name "=AVG()" although you will be prompted to change this to "AVERAGE".

1 - What is the average (or arithmetic mean) of these values (1,2,3). 6 divided by 2.
2 - What is the average of these values (1,2,3,0). 6 divided by 3.
3 - What is the average of these values (-2,-3,4,5,6). 10 divided by 5.
4 - What is the average of the values in the array {-2,-3,4,5}. 10 divided by 5.
5 - What is the average of the values in the range "B1:B3". 30 divided by 3.
6 - What is the average of the values in the range "B1", "B2" and "B3". 30 divided by 3.
7 - What is the average of the values in the range "B1", "B2", "B3" and "B4". B4 is empty so this gets excluded. 30 divided by 3.
8 - What is the average of the values in the range "B1", "B2", "B3" and "B5". B5 is zero so this gets included. 30 divided by 4.
9 - What is the average of the values in the range "B1", "B2", "B3" and "B6". B6 is text so this is excluded. 30 divided by 3.
10 - What is the average of the values in the range "B1", "B2", "B3" and "B7". B7 is a logical value so this is excluded. 30 divided by 3.
11 - What is the average of the values in the range "B1", "B2", "B3" and "B8". B8 is a logical value so this is excluded. 30 divided by 3.
12 - What is the average of the values in the range "B1", "B2", "B3" and "B9". B9 is a date so this gets included as a date serial number.
13 - What is the average of the values in the named range that refers to the range "B1:B3". 30 divided by 3.
14 - What is the average of the values in the range "B1", "B2", "B3" and "B10". B10 contains an error so that gets returned.
15 - What is the average of these values (2, "3"). Text values that are actually numbers are included. 5 divided by 2.
16 - What is the average of these values (2, TRUE). Logical values passed as arguments are included. TRUE is replaced with 1. 3 divided by 2.
17 - What is the average of these values (2, FALSE). Logical values passed as arguments are included. FALSE is replaced with 0. 2 divided by 2.
18 - What is the average of these values (2, "some text"). Text values passed as arguments generate an error.
19 - What is the average of the values in the array {2, "some text"}. Text values inside arrays are excluded. 2 divided by 1.
20 - What is the average of the values in the array {2, TRUE}. Logical values inside arrays are excluded. 2 divided by 1.
