# AVERAGEA

Returns the numerical average value in a dataset.

### Sample Usage

AVERAGEA(A2:A100,B2:B100,4,26)

AVERAGEA(1,2,3,4,5,C6:C20)

### Syntax

AVERAGEA(value1, [value2, ...])

• value1 - The first value or range to consider when calculating the average value.

• value2, ... - [ OPTIONAL ] - Additional values or ranges to consider when calculating the average value.

### Notes

• Although AVERAGEA is specified as taking a maximum of 30 arguments, Google Sheets supports an arbitrary number of arguments for this function.

• Any text encountered in the value arguments will be set to 0 and included in calculation. To have text values ignored, use AVERAGE.

• AVERAGEA returns the mean of the combined value arguments; that is, the sum of the values in the value arguments divided by the number of such values. To calculate the median use MEDIAN.
