Average?

A1=0
A2=10
A3=Avg(A1:A2) '5


A1=5
A2=10
A3=Avg(A1:A2) '7.5

Sum of range devided by number of entrys

In Excel, =AVG(somerange) after pressing the Enter key and saying Yes will correct it to =AVERAGE(somerange). Help will first show the AVERAGE function.

AVG in other spreadsheet programs like Lotus123 and QuattroPro means the @AVG(somerange).
