# What function is used to find the average of a range of numbers while ignoring text and empty cells?

### d) AVERAGEEXCLUDETEXT

#### ### Show Answer b) AVERAGEA

To find the average of a range of numbers while ignoring text and empty cells in Excel, you can use the AVERAGEIF function in combination with other functions such as ISNUMBER. Here’s how you can do it:

Assuming your range of numbers and text is in cells A1 to A10, you can use the following formula:=AVERAGEIF(A1:A10,”>=0″)
Here’s what the formula does:

The AVERAGEIF function calculates the average of a range based on a specified condition.

• In this case, the condition is “>=0”, which means “greater than or equal to zero.” This condition will effectively exclude text values and empty cells because they are not greater than or equal to zero.
• This formula will provide you with the average of the numeric values in the specified range while ignoring text and empty cells.

Please note that if you have a different condition or criteria for filtering out non-numeric values, you can adjust the condition in the AVERAGEIF function accordingly
