# AVERAGEA

AVERAGEA(value1 [,value2] [..])

Returns the arithmetic mean of the values in a list, range or array (including logical values and text).

 value1 The first value. value2 (Optional) The second value.

 REMARKS
 * This function is identical to the AVERAGE function except that cell references to logical values and text are included.* This function includes hidden cells.* Arguments that are just numbers are included.* Arguments that are just numbers passed as text ("3") are included.* 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 included. See Example 11.* Arguments that are references to cells containing text are included and 0 is used. See Example 10.* Arguments that are arrays containing logical values are excluded. See Example 20.* Arguments that are arrays containing text are included and 0 is used. See Example 17.* If any cell references contain an error, then that error is returned. See Example 15.* You can have a maximum of 255 arguments.* You can use the AVERAGEAVISIBLE - User Defined Function to exclude hidden cells.* This is similar to the COUNTA, MAXA and MINA functions.* 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 gets included. 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 gets included. 30 divided by 3.12 - What is the average of the values in the range "B1", "B2", "B3" and "B7". B7 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 "2". The text representation of a number is excluded. 2 divided by 1.16 - 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 gets included. 2 divided by 2.18 - What is the average of the values 2 and the logical value True. TRUE is replaced with 1 so the logical value gets included. 7 divided by 4.19 - What is the average of the values 2 and the logical value False. FALSE is replaced with 0 so the logical value gets included. 6 divided by 4.20 - What is the average of the values 2 and the logical value False passed in as an array. The logical value is excluded. 2 divided by 1.
