    AVERAGEIFS and Skipping Zeros

    I've had MS Excel Exam. At one of its question, it wants average of the numbers on column B with AVERAGEIFS function but remove the zeros. (There are a lot of zero on column B. As far as I understand it wants me to skip zeros by using formulas.) How to do that?

    You should look at the help for the function. You won't learn by just asking people to tell you the answer. Look for it using Google ... or in Excel

    To exclude zeros (alone), you just need, for example, AVERAGEIF

    You should set up an example and compare the different functions: AVERAGE, AVERAGEIF, AVERAGEIFS.
