# Excel formula assistance

1. ## Excel formula assistance

I am planning to derive an answer in percentage in excel by using excel formula. Basically, I am trying to select a specific number from a cell, then add that specific number and then divide to get percentage.

For example -

In the excel sheet from total 5 cells - if Cell A1 has 100, Cell A2 has 100, Cell A5 has 100 - then select those 3 numbers from A1, A2, A5 and add them (100 + 100 + 100 = 300) then divide 5 and take that answer as percentage & in this case - 300 / 5 = 60

Can you share a formula by using select or another manner. Thank for your assistance.

Try:
Formula:
`Please Login or Register  to view this content.`
formatted as a percentage = 60.00%

Thanks TMS, there may be other numbers in A3 & A4. I wanted to use a formula to automatically pick the number 100 weather its in A1 or A3 or A4 (instead of manually entering that cell numbers) & add those numbers and divide by 5...

is this what you want...?
=(COUNTIF(A1:A5,100)*100/COUNTA(A1:A5))/100
or this...?
=(COUNTIF(A1:A5,100)*100/COUNT(A1:A5))/100
or this...?
=(COUNTIF(A1:A5,100)*100/5)/100

then format as percent.
