AVERAGE 
AVERAGE(number1 [,number2] [..]) 
Returns the arithmetic mean of the values in a list, range or array. 
number1  The first number. 
number2  (Optional) The second number. 
REMARKS 
* The arithmetic mean is the most common measure of central tendency. * For an illustrated example refer to the [[Central Tendency]] page. * 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 19. * Arguments that are just text will generate a #VALUE! error. See Example 16. * Arguments that are references to empty cells are excluded. See Example 8. * 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 arrays containing logical values are excluded. See Example 20. * Arguments that are arrays containing text are excluded. See Example 17. * If any cell references are empty, then these are excluded. See Example 8. * If any cell references contain an error, then that error is returned. See Example 14. * 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 satisfy multiple conditions. * You can use the AGGREGATE function to exclude hidden cells. * You can use the AVERAGEVISIBLE  User Defined Function to exclude hidden cells. * 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". * For the Microsoft documentation refer to support.microsoft.com * For the Google documentation refer to support.google.com 

1  What is the average (or arithmetic mean) of 2 and 4. 6 divided by 2. 2  What is the average of 5, 10 and 15. 30 divided by 3. 3  What is the average of 5, 10, 15 and 0. Zeros are always included. 30 divided by 4. 4  What is the average of 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6. 10 divided by 5. 5  What is the average of 2, 3, 4, 5 and 6 passed in as an array. 10 divided by 5. 6  What is the average of the values in the range "B1:B3". 30 divided by 3. 7  What is the average of the values in the range "B1", "B2" and "B3". 30 divided by 3. 8  What is the average of the values in the range "B1", "B2", "B3" and "B4". B4 is empty. Empty cells are always excluded. 30 divided by 3. 9  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. 10  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. 11  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. 12  What is the average of the values in the range "B1", "B2", "B3" and "B8". B8 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 "B5", "B6" and "B9". B9 contains an error so that gets returned. 15  What is the average of the values 2 and "3". Text values that are actually numbers are included. 16  What is the average of the values 2 and "some text". The text generates an error. 17  What is the average of the values 2 and "some text" passed in as an array. The text is excluded. 2 divided by 1. 18  What is the average of the values 2 and the logical value True. TRUE is replaced with 1 so the logical value gets included. 3 divided by 2. 19  What is the average of the values 2 and the logical value False. FALSE is replaced with 0 so the logical value gets included. 2 divided by 2. 20  What is the average of the values 2 and the logical value True passed in as an array. The logical value is excluded. 2 divided by 1.
