AVERAGEMIDDLE (Range,TopCount)

• can be any set of real numbers.
• can be number of numbers from top.
• AVERAGE(), returns the average of its arguments.

## Description

• This function gives the Average for given set of numbers from the top.
• Average means sum of all the given elements divided by Number of given elements.
• It is also called Arithmetic mean.
• i.e if numbers are given and each number is denoted by , where to , then = .

• In this function,the parameters can either be numbers,arrays,references of cells or we can enter the logical values directly.
• Arithmetic mean is the most common measures of central tendency.
• Central tendency is a single value that attempts to describe a set of data by identifying the central position within that set of data.
• The other common measures of central tendency are: Median,& Mode.
• A.M is calculated by adding the given set of numbers and divided by the count of the given set of numbers.
Average of 2,4,2,7,2,3 and 5 is 3.6

• Median: It is the middle number of a sorted list(Ascending order) of numbers.
The median of 2,2,2,3,4,5,7 is 3

• Mode: It is the most frequently repeated number in a given set of numbers.
The mode of 2,2,2,3,4,5 and 7 is 2.

• This function will show the result as Error,
1. when the values are error values or text that cannot change in to numbers.

## Examples
