## 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)

AppSheet must be given enough context to determine what type of values some-list contains, that its contents are or will be numeric. To that end, some-list must be one of the following: a column value of type List that contains numeric values; a column list (e.g., Products[Price]) for a column of a numeric type; or a constructed list (e.g., with LIST()) of a numeric type.

## Return Value

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