## Examples

`AVERAGE(Products[Price])` : The average of the all values in the `Price` column of the `Products` table. Equivalent to `AVERAGE(SELECT(Products[Price], TRUE))`. See also `SELECT()`.

`AVERAGE([Discounts])` : The average of the all items in the `Discounts` column value, where `Discounts` is of type `List` for some numeric type.

`AVERAGE(LIST(1, 2, 3))` : `2.00`

`AVERAGE(LIST(0) - LIST(0))` (a valid constructed list with a type but no items): `0.00`

### Average of Select Rows

Compute average product rating from customer feedback within the past month, excluding feedback with no rating:

``AVERAGE(  SELECT(    Feedback[Product Rating],    AND(      ([Product Rating] > 0),      ([Submitted] >= (EOMONTH(TODAY(), -2) + DAY(TODAY())))    )  ))``
• `SELECT(Feedback[Product Rating], ...)` gets a list of `Product Rating` values from select rows of the `Feedback` table.

• `AND(..., ...)` limits the `SELECT()` results to only those rows that match all of the conditions.

• `([Product Rating] > 0)` limits the selection to only rows with a `Product Rating` value greater than zero, where 0 is the default value and indicates "no rating".

• `([Submitted] >= ...)` further limits the rows to those with a submission date on or after the computed date.

• `(EOMONTH(TODAY(), -2) + DAY(TODAY()))` computes the date one month prior to today.

• `AVERAGE(...)` computes the average of the selected values.

### Common Problems

`AVERAGE(1, 2, 3)` : the arguments are not in list form. To fix, wrap them in `LIST()` to construct a list: `AVERAGE(LIST(1, 2, 3))`.

## Syntax

`AVERAGE( some-list )`

## Arguments

• `some-list` (list of any numeric type)

## Return Value

`Decimal`: the computed average of the values of `some-list`
