The word average means middle or central point.

Most of the time when we are required to calculate the average of a list of data we are supposed to calculate the ‘mean’ of the given data.

**Formula to calculate average in google sheets.**

To calculate average in google sheets, we only need the AVERAGE Function and arguments just like in excel.
