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


  • This function gives the Average for given set numbers.
  • 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.


  • AVERAGEBOTTOM([18,23,87,45,56,17,26,67,19,20],4) = 33
  • AVERAGEBOTTOM([5,-2,7,8,11,20,25,-9,12,18,23,76,89,129,98],7) = 63.57142857142857
