I’m fairly inexperienced with excel so this might be a bit of a basic question but I can’t seem to find the answer anywhere.
I have several rows, one is an “index” row while the others contain values. I want to get the averages for each row based on the indexes (average for each index).
I’ve been looking at the IF function inside an AVERAGE function but I can’t seem to figure out the proper syntax so I’m wondering if it is even possible?
I attempted to do it like so for a single average:
Straight away I can see a couple of problems. First for each positive conditional I am saying to use the entire row (I don’t know how to map one row to another) as a result. Secondly for each negative conditional I provide a 0 rather than ignoring that value.
From where I’m standing it doesn’t seem like what I need is possible to do…am I correct?
You can combine
COUNTIF functions to get the average:
=SUMIF(A1:K1,1,A2:K2) / COUNTIF(A1:K1, 1)
would give the average you want for index 1 (in row 1, columns A through K), values in row 2.
Have a look at the
AVERAGEIF function. Something like
should do what you want.
