How to Calculate Average with Rounding in Excel


Often you may want to calculate the average value of a range in Excel and round the result.

There are two common ways to do so:

Method 1: Round Average to Specific Number of Decimal Places

=ROUND(AVERAGE(A2:A14), 3)

This particular example calculates the average value of cells in the range A2:A14, then rounds the result to 3 decimal places.

Method 2: Round Average to Nearest Integer

=ROUND(AVERAGE(A2:A14), 0)

This particular example calculates the average value of cells in the range A2:A14, then rounds the result to the nearest integer.

The following examples show how to use each method in practice with the following column of values in Excel, which has an average value of 25.3077:

Example 1: Round Average to Specific Number of Decimal Places

We can type the following formula into cell D2 to calculate the average of values in the range A2:A14, then round the result to 3 decimal places:

Excel round average to specific number of decimal places

The formula returns the average value of the cells in the range A2:A14 rounded to 3 decimal places, which turns out to be 25.231.

Note: To round to a different number of decimal places, simply change the 3 in the ROUND function to a different number.

Example 2: Round Average to Nearest Integer

We can type the following formula into cell D2 to calculate the average of values in the range A2:A14, then round the result to the nearest integer:

=ROUND(AVERAGE(A2:A14), 0)

The following screenshot shows how to use this formula in practice:

Excel round average to nearest integer

The formula returns the average value of the cells in the range A2:A14 rounded to the nearest integer, which turns out to be 25.

Note: If you would like to round the result up or down to the nearest integer, simply replace the ROUND function with the ROUNDUP or ROUNDDOWN functions, respectively.
