I have two columns “A” and “B”. Column “A” has a series of numbers between 7 and 11 (these represent school year groups). Column B has a series of numeric grade scores.
I need to build a formula that will give me an average score for, say, year 8 students.
Could you help me with this please?
Thanks in advance.
You pretty much answered your own question in your subject:
Range is one or more cells to average, including numbers or names, arrays, or references that contain numbers.
Criteria is the criteria in the form of a number, expression, cell reference, or text that defines which cells are averaged. For example, criteria can be expressed as 32, "32", ">32", "apples", or B4.
Average_range is the actual set of cells to average. If omitted, range is used.
