## Instructions

- Open your Excel spreadsheet.
- Select the cell where you want the mean to be displayed. Let's assume you want to display the mean in cell B1.
- Type the following formula into the selected cell:
- =AVERAGE(A1:A10)
- Replace
**A1:A10**with the actual range of cells containing your data. - Press Enter.

Now, the mean of the data in cells A1 to A10 will be displayed in cell B1.

## Tips

- You can use the AVERAGE function for non-contiguous ranges. For example:
- =AVERAGE(A1,A3,A5,A7)
- To find the mean of data in an entire column or row, use:
- For a column (e.g., column A):
- =AVERAGE(A:A)
- For a row (e.g., row 1):
- =AVERAGE(1:1)
- If your data is in a table, use:
- =AVERAGE(Table1[Column1])
- Replace
**Table1**with the actual table name and**Column1**with the column name in your table.

Finding the mean in Excel is a simple process using the AVERAGE function, and it allows you to quickly calculate the average of your dataset. If you have any further questions, feel free to ask!
