Get the Average of a Series

Summary: Display the average value of grades, monthly profits, yearly expenses, etc. in a Microsoft Excel 2003 spreadsheet.

Often when developing a Microsoft Excel 2003 spreadsheet you may need to calculate the average of a series of numbers. For example:

* The average amount of revenue a company brought in per month.

* The average test score of a student.

* The average cost to produce a product from several companies' plants.

To do so requires the =AVERAGE function. For example:

=average(99,89,84,92,90)

would result in the value:

90.8

You could combine this with the =round function to round the average to the nearest whole number, for example with grades:

=round(average(99,89,84,92,90),0)

The result:

91

You can also get the average of a series. For example, to get the average of cells A1 through A7:

=round(average(a1:a7),0)
