Did you know that Excel was able to automatically calculate an average? In this tutorial, we show you how to do it!
Automatically get average of multiple cells in Excel
- Select cell where you want to display the automatic average of multiple cells.
- In the tab Home on the ribbon, click the small arrow to the left of the icon AutoSum ( ∑ ) Section Packages, And then Average
- Excel will attempt to automatically detect the cells it needs to average. If the wrong cells are selected, then you will have to select them yourself. Note: hold down your left mouse click to select multiple adjacent cells. Click while holding the key Ctrl if they are distant squares.
- Once the cells are selected, press the enter key on your keyboard to have Excel calculate the cells you selected.
Automating your calculations with Excel allows you to save a lot of time without worrying about the syntax of formulas. With practice the handling of these functions will become a habit, but you still need to know that Excel can do it for you.
