In the above image, we find
two-column of data. The first column shows the different subject of one student
and the other column shows the number of the respective subject. Our formula is
quite similar to SUM formula. Here we used ** =AVERAGE(C4:C8)**. Since our data
starts from C4 and ends with C8 so, we used C4:C8 as reference. We can also
write

**as our formula and it will result in the same.**

*=AVERAGE(C4,C5,C6,C7,C8)*
