The formula to use in obtaining the average of the cells listed above in Microsoft excel is = average (a1:a5).
To get average, you add the values of all the items in the cells divided by the number of cells
= (a1 +a2+ a3 +a4+ a5)/ 5
Therefore, the two possible formulas of obtaining average in Microsoft excel are:
= average (a1:a5).
= (a1 +a2+ a3 +a4+ a5)/ 5
Hope this helps.

To get the average of range a1:a5 the formula should be
= average(a1:a5)

To average, you add the numeric values of all the items and then divide by the NUMBER OFITEMS added.
Capitalization is not an issue...

POSSIBLE ANSWERS TO THIS QUESTION
  • =(A1+A2+A3+A4+A5)/5
  • =AVERAGE(a1:a5)
I got the question right, but my answer was marked "wrong".

My answer was, =(A1+A2+A3+A4+A5)/5



My answer should not have been marked "wrong", but it was. There's a problem in the programming.

My answer was =average(a1:a5). I did not use uppercase letters. You do not have to use uppercase letters in Excel for the formula to work. So my answer is not wrong
